Burned House is one of Strindberg’s chamber plays written at the end of his life when he experimented wildly with form. When a man returns to his hometown after years abroad, he finds his childhood home burned to the ground. As he sifts through the ashes, he finds clues to not only the origins of the fire but to the mysteries of his life as well.
