Playing the Wife: A Play
S. French, 1996 - 73 pages
In this brilliant study of August Strindberg's misogyny, the renowned author is rehearsing an autobiographical play in what seems to be the ruin of a theatre. The script focuses on the break up of his marriage to Siri Von Essen and the actress playing Siri is on the verge of becoming his next wife.
