About this show

August Strindberg's classic about sex, greed and manipulation is adapted by the modern master of such tantalizing topics: Neil LaBute. The scandalous turn of the century drama, banned in Britain for nearly fifty years after its publication, chronicles the night-long flirtation and seduction between the wealthy lady of the house and one of her father's household employees. Set on Long Island just before the 1929 stock market crash and featuring one of theater's most commanding female characters, this world premiere adaptation couples provocateurs Strindberg and LaBute who capture the timeless consequences of passion and power.
