In The Stronger two women – the wife and the mistress – meet in a cafe. One
speaks, the other is silent.
In Pariah two men lock horns in a
battle to gain the moral high ground.
This double bill of rarely seen,
darkly comic playlets explores Strindberg’s favourite theme of dominance and
submission, but also debates the complexities of crime and punishment.
