By August Strindberg Translated by Howard Brenton

Ebook £7.99£6.39

Young artist Adolf is deeply in love with his new wife Tekla – but a chance meeting with a suave stranger shakes his devotion to the core.

Passionate, dangerously funny, and enduringly perceptive, Strindberg considered this wickedly enjoyable black comedy his masterpiece.

August Strindberg's play Creditors was written in the summer of 1888, and first staged at the Dagmar Theatre in Copenhagen in March 1889.

This English version by Howard Brenton was premiered in March 2019 in a co-production between Jermyn Street Theatre, London, and Theatre by the Lake, Keswick, directed by Jermyn Street's Artistic Director Tom Littler.

This version of Creditors is also available in the volume Miss Julie & Creditors.
