Theater for the New City presents
Creditors 2023, an August Strindberg Rep adaptation of Strindberg’s Creditors. The 1888 drama is updated to modern Long Island in this version, which is newly translated and directed by Robert Greer. It’s 2023 and Gustav (Mike Roche), a professor of classics and archaeology, travels to Montauk, where his faithless ex-wife, celebrity novelist Tekla (Natalie Menna) and her eminent painter husband Adolf (Brad Fryman) are summering. During Tekla’s absence on a book tour, Gustav, Iago like, worms his way into Adolf’s confidence and undermines their already shaky marriage, with fatal consequences. The play, a masterpiece from Strindberg's naturalist period, is rarely excelled in its unity of construction, dramatic tension and acute psychological analysis.

Mike is playing Kurtis in KURTIS by Julie Hays. Catch our most recent episode here!
"He (Roche) had moments of greatness. His sermon on gossip was wonderfully done. When she (Sister James) tells him she believes him, his relief was beautifully played, and finally, I liked the guy. His quiet moment of uncertainty after the fiery meeting with Sister Aloysius, the principal of the school, was powerful”. -Mindy Larson TheatreOnline.com (DOUBT review)
