Two men, one an artist and the other 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. Deliciously dark and funny, this co-production with the New American Theatre of August Strindberg's Creditors is a story of vengeance, jealousy and psychological warfare that helped pave the way for modern Scandinavian noir.

I've seen a lot of Shakespeare and this was among the best. The acting was superb, making the play understandable and accessible. The novelty of having an all-woman cast was lovely but the fun of that wore off quickly and the seriousness of the play and the beauty of the language replaced that very early one. Hamlet's agony was palpable and his terrible mistake brought me to tears. Thank you, Los Angeles Women's Shakespeare Company. Thank you, Odyssey Theatre. Thank you, Goldstar!
