The Father

By: August Strindberg
Staging: Nicolas Stemann

August Strindberg was a sensitive extremist in an age of radical upheaval. He was initially part of an early feminist emancipation movement at the end of the 19th Century, and then a paranoid reactionary; like a seismograph Strindberg captures in The Father what a patriarchal world in turmoil means. Nicolas Stemann examines contemporary men as members of an endangered, dangerous gender: they run amok, turning against others and themselves – an overwhelming number of suicides are committed by men, also. Strindberg is the author of these men and their frantic effort to “take back control”.
