August Strindberg's Creditors is a twisting tale of revenge and psychological suspense. Deliciously dark and funny, it helped pave the way for modern Scandinavian noir. Creditors is a story of vengeance, jealousy and psychological warfare about a man whose marriage is threatened when he falls under the spell of a mysterious stranger. The Tribune calls Creditors "taut and mordantly funny." The Sun-Times says it's "blisteringly honest." And New City proclaims it "incredibly satisfying ... as funny as it is searing." Learn More

A nice walk from the Fullerton red/brown stop.
I found street parking that I did not have to pay for about two blocks away near OZ park.

We did not enjoy this at all, we thought it was terrible. Your original description was nothing like the play, had it been we would never have bought tickets. I believe this is the 1st time your description was so wrong. The screaming was loud and obnoxious as was the music. We saw no need for the strip scene, it could have been done with more taste and the constant swearing and lewd language we also felt was much too much. There is a limit. Had there been an intermission we would have left. The actors themselves were good and worked hard at this production. The staging was great, gave the effect of being in a pool, but the production we thought was awful and we were so sorry we had bought tickets. Again, the explanation of this play did not describe the bizarre screaming & loud psychedelic music.Would not recommend this play unless your into this type of thing!

I am very glad I saw this production. It was creative and extremely thought provoking especially if you are in the arts. I thought about it for days afterwards. I also like how the story was told in the third person. My own imagination got to have a say in the story telling and I like that. One thing, the sound was a little loud so I had to wear ear plugs. It is very intimate.

Innovative staging of a challenging piece, but all parties made it work! Anne Sheridan Smith was a stand out in the cast.
