August Strindberg Rep presents a new adaptation of Strindberg's impressionistic play about an aspiring playwright. More…
After years of struggle, Maurice sees that his about-to-be-produced drama is poised for success. But on the evening of his victory, in a fit of wild passion, he abandons his mistress and her child to take up with the mistress of a friend. When his old mistress' child dies, he accuses his new love of committing murder, while the law thinks Maurice may be the killer. This new adaptation of Strindberg's classic offers a lighter take on the story, setting it in modern-day NYC and adding an element of absurdity by making the human child a treasured champion show dog.
