Play Strindberg



Première 1993 Amsterdam


Friedrich Dürrenmatt wrote´Play Strindberg´in the form of a tragicomic boxing match; a dance macabre in twelve rounds. The tragedy of a broken marriage, ending up in an orgy of self pity and false sentiments


The director chose for Commedia dell’Arte characters and a playground as battlefield.
