A student with second sight.

He longs for beauty, wealth, and the nobility of the upper class. His journey of discovery will show him crimes, lies, regrets, hyacinths. And a talking mummy. Strindberg unflinchingly squires us through a strange maze of desire and disillusionment, drawing us inexorably deeper into a world of bright shadows and dark truths. Rarely produced in English, director Zach Morgan and nimbus’ fearless ensemble, with a new translation by Danielle Blackbird, illuminate Strindberg’s seminal work of modernist drama.

Premiered November 1 - 23, 2014 at Nimbus Theater
