August Strindberg's THE PELICAN
directed by Charles C. Bales and Wayne Maugans
This rarely produced and little known psychological drama by seminal Swedish playwright August Strindberg tells the story of an evil mother who lets her son and daughter go hungry while she lives the high life. When her husband dies and her daughter gets married, the mother’s life of greed and excess is revealed. Unwilling to take responsibility, she sets in motion a series of tragic events. This searing drama about familial politics and economic inequality is just as provocative today as it was when it was first produced in 1907.
