Strindberg Rep
The Father
Event Status
Who is the father of his daughter?
A wife casts doubts as to whether her husband is father of her daughter, in order to maintain control over daughter's academic and religious education. The husband, an army captain, is a scientist and a "free thinker," meaning atheist. He would have daughter educated to be a teacher, while the mother would have her become a painter. The mother manipulates the town Pastor (who happens to be her stepbrother) and the newly arrived town Doctor for her purposes. She uses her erotic influence over the doctor and her readiness to claim that the family lawyer is her child's father to drive her husband into the arms of his old trusted nurse, who straitjackets him. Brad Fryman plays the Captain, Natalie Menna plays his wife Laura, Daniel Lugo plays the Doctor, Gabe Bettio plays the Pastor, Bailey Newman plays the daughter Bertha, Jo Vetter plays the Captain's old Nurse Margret, and Tyler Joseph plays the Captain’s orderly Happy.
