CREDITORS Set for Extended Run at PTE

Phoenix Theatre Ensemble (PTE) announces that it will be remounting its 2014 production of August Strindberg's searing domestic drama Creditors in the celebrated translation by Scottish playwright David Grieg (Donmar Warehouse 2008; BAM 2010) for 10 performances (Jan 26 - Feb 10) playing in rotating repertory with Glyn Maxwell's The Gambler at the Wild Project at 195 East 3rd Street (between Avenues A and B).

Set at a seaside resort, Gustav (Craig Smith) befriends an impressionable highly successful young artist, Adolph (Josh Tyson). Under Gustav's relentless questioning Adolph's fears of infidelity of his novelist wife Tekla (Elise Stone) come ragingly to the forefront. It ultimately becomes clear that the manipulative Gustav is scheming a psychological deadly plot in this fatal sexual--part carnival funhouse--triangle.

Obie Award Winner and Drama Desk Nominee Kevin Confoy (Dogg's Hamlet, Cahoot's Macbeth, The Painting) directs with Craig Smith as Gustav, Josh Tyson as Adolph, Elise Stone as Tekla, and Sergio Fuenzalida as the bar tender. Sets, lights and costumes are designed by 2014 NYIT Nominees Tsubasa Kamei and Jennifer Stimple-Kamei. Scottish playwright David Grieg's ("chilling but surprisingly comedic" Los Angels Times) translation/adaptation was highly praised in the 2008 Donmar Playhouse and 2010 New York BAM productions.
