Opening tomorrow, April 29, at the Theater for the New City in the East Village is CREDITORS, an 1888 August Strindberg play adapted for the 2023 stage and directed by Robert Greer. Gustav, professor of classics and archeology, travels in disguise to Montauk, where his faithless ex-wife, celebrity novelist Tekla, and her eminent painter husband Adolf are summering. During Tekla’s absence on a book tour, Gustav worms his way into Adolf’s confidence and undermines their already shaky marriage with fatal consequences.
You don’t want to miss this! The combination of stellar performers Natalie Menna, Brad Fryman, and Mike Roche promises to be a riveting experience based on their previous plays together as an ensemble.
