On an isolated island, Military captain Edgar and his wife, Alice, live a bitter life, their marriage soured by hatred. When the possibility of redemption and escape arrives for Alice in the shape of their former comrade Kurt, it seems that Edgar is prepared to use his very last breath to make their lives a living hell.
Strindberg’s compelling battle of wills is laced with black comedy and biting humour. Now Conor McPherson brings his uniquely humane voice to this visceral new English version.
