November 20th, 2018

“One of those taut, intelligent, passionately restrained pieces of writing...The material is so juicy! Unfortunately, in this production by the August Strindberg Repertory you would never know it...The combination of pauses you could drive a truck through, an extraordinarily low level of energy, and complete lack of direction dooms this production from the first moments. It’s as if the actors are sleepwalking through the material...’The Father’ is both timeless and timely."
