Show details


Adolph, a young artist, is deeply in love with his new wife Tekla.

She's intelligent, educated, and experienced.

He loves her independence and sophistication.

Sometimes he worries he's not her equal.

But a chance meeting with a suave stranger in a seaside hotel shakes Adolph's devotion to the core.

Passionate, dangerously funny, and enduringly perceptive, Creditors is a wickedly enjoyable black comedy, regarded by Strindberg as his masterpiece.
