Nathan James places this expressionist play in an era where in Black neighborhoods where social change had accelerated to the point of surrealism. The Civil rights era come to a boil during the early '60s, the first inter-racial couples had begun to appear in public and a partner in one of these couples was the literary artist Amiri Baraka. His parallels to The Stranger, the hero of Strindberg's play, are poignant. The August Strindberg Rep will present Part Two in March, 2015 and Part Three in 2016, the first time the trilogy has been presented complete in English and the first time in any language in 99 years! Featuring DeSean Stokes from our NY Times lauded production of "Easter" and Kersti Bryan, star of our Huffington Post praised "Mr. Bengt's Wife."
