Deception is a fascinating drug, and this play sells it in spades. A riveting psychological thriller.

“A thrilling new interpretation”—The New York Times

Inhabiting each others' minds proves to be the psychological chess match that August Strindberg is once again the master of in this stunning translation by David Greig (recipient of the prestigious John Whiting Award). Strindberg called this play his most mature work, and in this riveting version the emotional landscape is littered with debt. The cost of love runs deep for these three characters, and if everyone owes something to someone, who can really call themselves a creditor?
