Before The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, before Ingmar Bergman, before even the phrase "Swedish noir," came Creditors, a sexy, twisting tale of psychological manipulation and revenge. Not that Strindberg saw it that way – he told his publisher the play was "humorous, loveable, all of its characters sympathetic."
Creditors is the spiraling story of a ruthless psychological assault, a step-by-step march into a mental and sexual abyss. Strindberg may have seen the play as comedy, but it is humor as dark as midwinter Sweden. We’re proud to present the Midwest premiere of David Grieg’s witty new adaptation that drew raves in London and New York.
