August Strindberg's surrealist play is given a haunting and hypnotic interpretation by the Actor's Gang. This study of unforgiving hearts and deep seated guilt has been intriguing audiences for over a century, and this new production takes it to a new level. Two families, imprisoned by greed, duplicity and manipulation, seduce an idealistic student into a web of lies. His unflagging honesty lifts the shroud of lies, and audiences are left to wonder: Was the family living in denial, or were they apparitions of their former selves condemned to eternal regret?

About the Ticket Supplier: Los Angeles Women's Theatre Festival
The Los Angeles Women’s Theater Festival (LAWTF) was founded by solo artist Adilah Barnes and Miriam Reed.
Adilah and Miriam were joined by solo artists of diverse disciplines (including actors, dancers, story tellers, performance artists, performance poets, sculptors and comedians).
LAWTF was inspired by the Women’s Theatre Festival in Philadelphia that had created the National Women’s Theatre Festival satellite in Los Angeles in 1992 at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). In 1993, LAWTF picked up the torch and continued the vision that had been planted by the Women’s Theater Festival in Los Angeles.
