Production by H. B. FORTUIN The broadcast of January 30,
1961, in the Home Service
Tonight's play is not among Strindberg's best - known dramas, but to some critics it is his masterpiece. It is certainly the fullest analysis of the problem that haunted him for most of his life: the nature of the bond that unites a man and woman in marriage: a contract demanded by society that matures into either indifference or a vicious entanglement of love and hate
