August Strindberg Rep presents one of Strindberg's lesser known plays for children, a magical Christmas story that revolves around a lost black glove. More…
In this lyrical fantasy, a lost black glove found in the entryway to a large apartment building the day before Christmas Eve mystically passes through the hands of many of its residents as it bestows a Christmas spirit. The play will be acted by a cast of six women, in the British Travesty tradition of the late 1800s, in order to ensure that the play will be children-friendly. The piece is recommended for audiences age 8 and up.
