About this show

Vengeance, jealousy, and psychological warfare grind at the core of August Strindberg's Creditors in a new version by playwright David Greig. The Donmar Warehouse's production--direct from a sold-out run in London--is a fiercely modern take on one of Strindberg's more fervent explorations of the battle between the sexes. Anxiously awaiting the return of his new wife Tekla (Anna Chancellor), Adolph (Tom Burke) finds solace in the words of a stranger (Owen Teale), but comfort soon turns to destruction as old wounds are opened, insecurities are laid bare, and former debts are settled. Alan Rickman (whose acting credits include the Harry Potter series and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and direction of The Winter Guest) directs this darkly comic tale--considered Strindberg's most mature work.
