A modern melodrama of obsession, honour and revenge, CREDITORS is Strindberg’s least produced play, but considered one of his most mature. With a new adaptation by Scottish playwright David Greig, CREDITORS was originally produced by Donmar Warehouse in London, 2008. The show, under the direction of Alan Rickman, transferred to New York in 2010 where Ben Brantley called it a “thrilling new interpretation.”

CREDITORS is a blackly comic depiction of gender warfare; a savage tragicomedy that is both painful and fascinating. Slyly manipulative Gustav, one of the play’s tortured threesome and Adolph’s tormentor, is a portrait of raw, undiluted destructiveness. Systematically poisoning Adolph’s marriage by suggestion, Gustav is out for revenge. The power games continue to shift with the arrival of Adolph’s wife Tekla, his object of desire and disdain.

Dora Award and Betty Mitchell Award-nominated director Rae Ellen Bodie is a highly sought-after voice/acting/performance coach, theatre director and actor. CREDITORS features Hardee T. Lineham (Harper Regan, The Ugly One, Stuff Happens) as Gustav; Noah Reid (Dead Metaphor, Parfumerie, Three Sisters) as Adolph; and Liisa Repo-Martell (SEEDS, King Lear, Uncle Vanya) as Tekla.

The COAL MINE is an independent theatre space curated by Ted Dykstra and Diana Bentley. The premiere production, The Motherf**ker with the Hat by Stephen Adly Guirgis, directed by Layne Coleman, ran November 9-30, 2014; Bull by Mike Bartlett, directed by David Ferry is currently on stage; and Creditors by August Strindberg, directed by Rae Ellen Bodie, will cap the inaugural season of sharp, smart, in-your-face theatre.
