Johan August Strindberg is frequently described as the father of modern Swedish literature, having written prolifically over 4 decades as a novelist, essayist, and playwright. An iconoclastic visionary, Strindberg's work varied drastically in subject matter, dramatic technique, and form. Painting true, rather than pretty pictures, Strindberg attained a level of psychological realism equaled by few dramatists before or since.
In the three One-Act mini-dramas presented on this exclusive DVD, love, ambition, religion, friendship, trust, and duty are all examined with the playwright's iconoclastic flair and showcase Strindberg's revolutionary vision that is a artistic ancestor to both Expressionism and Surrealism.
Faithful to the playwright's spirit, the production intentionally employs austere settings and understated costumes to focus attention on the carefully crafted scripts and the core conflicts of the characters' souls. Revealing and occasionally painful, the plays' uncompromising realism is affectedly written and performed with an intensity of emotional power rivaled only by its cathartic potential.
