Violence erupts as they realize that they may be more dependent on their positions in life than they thought. Strindberg's drama is as timely as ever as it depicts people struggling with their place in society. The play shows an attempted destruction of the barriers of gender and class. The failure of this attempt gives us a harrowing look at what keeps people from stepping out of the positions they are born into.

See it if you like explorations of the class system and how it affects love/relationships.
Don't see it if I found it a bit repetitive and long and maybe overacted and predictable
