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.

saw it on preview night, a couple of missed cues and lighting that needs improvement. however, the play itself is smartly written and refreshing. great acting by all, conversations had an easy natural flow - didn't feel contrived or preachy. characters were endearing. my friend and I were among the few younger audience members yet we related to the stories and the journeys. it provided mature and emotionally intelligent insight to middle age. we recommend the show : )
Growing older doesn’t always mean growing wiser. Harriet (Jane Kaczmarek) is a widow and single mother; Nina (Diane Cary) has left her actor husband to escape the shadow of his celebrity; and twice-divorced Meg (Sharon Sharth) has been navigating the single world for ten years. These women, and the men in their lives, take a journey of self-discovery, stopping along the way to examine the gray areas of marriage and divorce, want and need, sexual ambiguity and dating in the age of online matchmaking.
Running time is 90 minutes.
