"Life offers a thousand means by which we can hurt each other."
Young artist, Adolph is in love with his new wife, the successful novelist Tekla, and why would he not be? Charming, vivacious and experienced, she has been his passion, his inspiration and his education.
As he anxiously awaits her return to their seaside retreat, Adolph finds solace in the words of a stranger. But comfort soon turns to destruction as old wounds are opened, insecurities laid bare and former debts settled in a tight spiral of psychological manipulation, love, betrayal and revenge.
The great master of modern drama, August Strindberg, considered this portrait of an intense sexual triangle to be his one true masterpiece.
Tony Award winner Stewart Laing returns to Scotland to direct an adaptation that bristles with sexual tension and paranoia. Famed for his striking visual style, Stewart's acclaimed work with his own company Untitled Projects, Scottish Opera, the Royal Court and theatres throughout Scotland, places him firmly as one of this country's foremost theatre makers.
