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.

First of all, I am a big fan of improv and understand that the nature of it makes it hit or miss but this show, despite the obvious talent of all the performers, was flat and downright boring. I kept trying to be amused but by the 4th piece, the group was floundering and out of sync with each other. A pity. I love Three For All and recognized one of the guys from that group in this show. Perhaps other shows will be better but I wont go back to see. I went with my 81 year old father who was far less impressed than I.

- "Masters of evanescence, the performers at Impro Theatre assemble the theatrical equivalents of sand sculptures. Their shows are seen for one night only, never to be repeated...the performers are uniformly professional, comfortable in their skins and with one another...the show’s amazingly deft sound and lighting improvisers create spur-of-the-moment effects that are crucial to the fun." --Los Angeles Times
- "[Chekhov Unscripted is] the most authentic and thoughtful staging of Anton Chekhov I’ve experienced in America...The play remained from first to last rich with symbol and theme...I laughed and wept..I’ve rarely seen a company so thoroughly comprehend the bizarre hyperreality of this writer’s universe...I’m seeing this as many times as I can before its run ends." --Stage and Cinema
