Black Glove
 
A black glove lost the day before Christmas Eve mystically passes through the hands of neighbors as it bestows a Christmas spirit.

Additional Notes:
Even people familiar with August Strindberg may be surprised to learn that he wrote plays for children. The best example is The Black Glove, the fifth (and least performed) of his Chamber Plays. Its place in history has been obscured by a historical fluke: it premiered in 1911, after the close of Strindberg's Intimate Theater, which it was written for. This kept it out of many anthologies. To share it with New York audiences--and especially New York kids--August Strindberg Rep will present it November 30 to December 16 at Gene Frankel Theatre, 24 Bond Street, in the New York premiere of a verse translation by Anne-Charlotte Hanes Harvey. Director is Robert Greer, Artistic Director of the troupe. The piece is recommended for audiences age 8 and up and special family plans are being offered. In Strindberg's lyrical fantasy, a lost black glove found in the entryway to a large apartment building the day before Christmas Eve mystically passes through the hands of many of its residents as it bestows a Christmas spirit. The glove belongs to a young wife who has been mistreating her servants and who is known as too rich for her own good. She has wrongly accused her maid of stealing the ring, but in actuality it is lodged in the glove. Trouble is, there are only two characters who know this: a Tomte (a mythological elf from Nordic folklore typically associated with the winter solstice and Christmas season) and the Christmas Angel. The angel commands the Tomte to take away the young wife's baby daughter in order to teach the wife a lesson about what it feels like to lose something, promising to restore the baby as a Christmas gift. In the course of the play, the wife learns humility and discovers her lost father. The play will be acted by a cast of seven women, in the British Travesty tradition of the late 1800s (in which Sarah Bernhardt played Hamlet, etc.), in order to ensure that the play will be children-friendly. The set will be minimal because the primary
