This book offers a detailed critical analysis of Strindberg's major works in performance, created after his psychic upheaval, which he called his "Inferno." Ranging from the early productions of Max Reinhardt and Olof Molander to the reinterpretations of Robert Lepage, Robert Wilson, and Ingmar Bergman, the study explores the crucial impact of this dramatist's method of playwriting. Each chapter ends with a section devoted to innovative Strindberg performances on the contemporary stage.Read more

"Superb illustrations and an effective discussion of various directors'approaches to [Strindberg's] works.... Recommended." ChoiceSee more reviews
"Frederick and Lise-Lone Marker excel at what they do: they create living histories of individual performances. They are indeed so good at what they do that it is probably caviling to note that they do not succeed at proving that "these plays...have had a compelling impact on modernist and postmodernist theatre and theatrical theory" (ix). Nonetheless, Strindberg and Modernist Theatre stands as an important contribution to an understanding of Strindberg's plays as theater." Scandinavian Studies, Marilyn Johns Blackwell, Ohio State University
