Creditorsdesignated by Strindberg as a “naturalistic tragedy, better still than Miss Julie, with three people, a table and two chairs, and no sunrise!”. The manuscript was completed in September 1888. He immediately set about translating his play into French (Créanciers“) for the international launch. An erotic love triangle based on the contemporary research on the suggestion, epilepsy and sexuality were viable stuff on experimental theaters not only in Paris, Berlin and Munich. The Nordic premiere took place at Dagmar Teatret in Copenhagen when Strindberg Try Theatre arrived there in 1889. Augustsson Falck took up the “Creditors” just before the Intima theater’s closure in 1910. Creditors were both on stage and in the auditorium at the time. Now it’s time again!
