“No, when you’ve been deceived, even just once, you arm yourself.”
Adolph, a young artist, is deeply in love with his new wife Tekla. She's intelligent, educated, and experienced. He loves her independence and sophistication. Sometimes he worries he's not her equal. But a chance meeting with a suave stranger in a seaside hotel shakes Adolph's devotion to the core.
Passionate, dangerously funny, and enduringly perceptive, Creditors is a wickedly enjoyable black comedy, regarded by Strindberg as his masterpiece.
August Strindberg is ranked alongside Chekhov and Ibsen as a master of theatrical realism.
Howard Brenton is a multi award-winning playwright whose plays have recently appeared at the National Theatre, Hampstead Theatre, and Shakespeare's Globe.
Tom Littler is Artistic Director of Jermyn Street Theatre.
