Adolf, a young up and coming artist begins to harbour suspicions and questions the whereabouts of his rather frivolous and free spirited older wife. A timely visit from a mysterious and enigmatic stranger just might be the answer to putting these doubts to rest and with his offer of solace, a way to make sense of a world of uncertainty where his masculinity, creativity and indeed his very existence is at stake. Who is this stranger? Why has he appeared at such a pivotal point in the life of this young artist? Strindberg’s dark and timeless tragicomedy grants us a peek into a world of sexual obsession, revenge and the reopening of old wounds, ending with the inevitable but shocking lesson of what could happen when love dies.
