Sheila and Hughes Potiker Theatre
adapted and directed by Doug Wright
Adaptor/director Doug Wright gives August Strindberg’s Creditors a modern-day urgency in this compelling and savagely witty play. Two men — an artist and a mysterious stranger — strike up a seemingly innocent conversation at a seaside resort. As they exchange increasingly intimate perspectives on art, marriage and women — in particular, the artist’s wife — undercurrents of sexuality, language and economics explode into a tangled web of intrigue, suspicion and revenge in this gripping 19th century psychological thriller.
