This is an adaptation of a play from the end of the 19th century. It is a psychological drama that is full of talk without a lot of drama.

GO! I'm a huge Strindberg fan, and have seen V. Redgrave in a production of this one in London. This show was just as engrossing, professional, entertaining, thought-provoking. Very glad we caught it.

The acting was top-notch. This 1888 August Strindberg psychological drama has the feel of an Alfred Hitchcock-type story in it.
