was written in 1892 by August Strindberg
(translated by Carina Beckerman & Ann Warren)
is a legend in five acts. It’s a fantasia where a heartbroken & lonely sculptor grieving
for his dead children joins a doctor and an aged and forgetful Saint Peter
on a surreal journey to the afterworld in a hopeless quest for the key to heaven.
The 3 set out on a quest through phantasmagorical landscapes
encountering various mythological, fairy-tale, and literary saga characters including:
Narcissus, Thersites, a fat and practical Don Quixote, an emaciated and idealistic Sancho Panza, Cinderella, Tom Thumb, the Old Hoberg Man,
several Shakespeare characters at Romeo and Juliet’s silver wedding anniversary,
as well as nymphs, fairies, dwarves, frogs, and eventually the Pope.
We experience a father’s memories through the
clamor of sounds, sights, and rhythms that embolden him to fulfill his destiny.
Moral: Build now a heaven of your own on earth but
trust not any who rattle with its keys.
