[/url]FREE Hidden Classics Reading Series: August Strindberg’s The Father, this Sunday, August 19
Cutting Ball will begin its 2012-2013 Hidden Classic Reading Series with our final Hidden Classics installment in a year-long investigation of August Strindberg’s work in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of his death. One of Strindberg’s best known plays, The Father, like Miss Julie, is an intense look at the power struggles between men and women. The Captain is a former military hero, who in a patriarchal society seems to have all of the power. In a struggle over how to raise their daughter, The Captain’s wife Laura raises doubts in the Captain’s mind as to whether or not he really is the father of his child. Whatever power the Captain has, he is totally at the mercy of his wife’s faithfulness or unfaithfulness.
