August Strindberg, Gregory Motton

Translated by Gregory Motton
PaperBack (27 Oct 2000)
£16.99

Includes the plays Miss Julie, The Father, The Comrades and Creditors

Miss Julie is Strindberg’s best known play, a naturalistic drama about an affair which involves a brutal struggle for ascendancy between the two sexes and two classes. The Father, an almost entirely one-sided rage against the power of women over men, is also a plea for the feminine side of a man’s nature. The Comrades portrays artists living in Paris in what they consider to be a modern ‘bohemian’ marriage. In Creditors, Strindberg is in rare comic form, describing how a woman’s ex-husband gains her new husband’s confidences, only to destroy him and his faith in his wife in one afternoon.

Cast sizes are 3+, 8, 3, and 11 respectively.
