Playing with Fire, based on the play by August Strindberg
The Private Theatre presents "Playing with Fire," based on the play by August Strindberg. This reworking of Strindberg's bold and unusual one-act comedy focuses on the play's themes of sexual frenzy, illicit coveting, exhibitionism, voyeurism, wife swapping and licentious fantasy. Six characters reside in a household: an incestuous father; an acquiescent mother; a philandering son; the son's wife, who is sleeping with her father-in-law while tempting her husband's best friend; and a cousin who pursues the friend and father, all while sleeping with the son. All this frenetic sexual activity will be brought to life by an eclectic group of 14  actors and actresses, in a multi-media landscape involving pre-recorded and live-feed video; explosive music from two composers (one from Bristol, UK and one from Hong Kong; high-energy choreography, and a full-scale environmental manipulation of the venue.

"Playing with Fire" is a production of The Private Theatre.
