The Black Glove
Linnea Wilson & Jennifer Stuckert in
The Maids by Jean Genet
by August Strindberg
Directed by Mei Ann Teo
Taking place in on a wistful Christmas Eve, The Black Glove boasts among its list of characters: a Christmas Spirit, a Christmas Fairy, a Taxidermist trying to order the universe, and a lost child who is found again. It is a side of Strindberg we almost never get to see, sensitive, delicate, and ultimately hopeful.
