CREDITORS

Genre: Drama
Written by August Strindberg, Directed by Elyse Knight

Independent producers Edward M. Suarez, Jr. and Lenore Wolf present a production of August Strindberg’s darkly funny masterpiece, Creditors. Elyse Knight, Artistic Director of Off World Theatre, will direct the production, which stars Ed Oliver as Gustav, Michael Bell as Adolf, and Laura Marks as Tekla.

Creditors will run February 9-21 at the Red Room, 85 East 4th Street, between 2nd Avenue and Bowery. Tickets are $12 ($10 for students and seniors), available at www.smarttix.com or by calling 212-868-4444. General seating. No wheelchair access. Running time is approximately 80 minutes.

Hailed as one of Strindberg’s finest works, Creditors is fraught with suspicion and intrigue. While Adolf, a young artist, waits for his wife at a seaside resort, a mysterious stranger arrives and gains his confidence. The ensuing drama of sexual obsession and revenge contains echoes of Strindberg’s own marriage.
