Playbll's Olivia Clement says, "5 Out-of-the-Box Shows to See Off-Broadway This Month ... Two August Strindberg Plays in Repertory"
Pariah is a blackmail scenario between an Swedish archaeologist (Mr. X) and an American entomologist (Mr. Y). In a dark room with a thunderstorm brewing, Mr. Y attempts to blackmail Mr. X over an accidental killing he had committed years ago, only to have the tables turned in a diabolical battle of wits. The Stronger is a spellbinding short drama for two actresses, one of whom speaks (Mrs. X), the other doesn't (Ms. Y). The former concludes over the course of a half hour that the latter is her husband's lover. Jarde Jacobs* and Michael William Bernstein* play Mr. X and Mr. Y. Amber Crawford* and Chudney Sykes* alternate in the roles of Mrs. X and Ms. Y. Note: Pariah includes an effect with flashing lights. The Stronger has a recorded gunshot and the smoking of an herbal cigarette. (*These actors and stagemanagers appearing courtesy of Actors' Equity Association).
