The ghost Sonata by August Strindberg at Beton7 for 7 performances.

The Ghost Sonata was written by Strindberg in 1907, a few years before his death and holds a special place in the worlds' most famous plays. The characters of the play are idealistic representations of nightmares at various stages of depression. Hummel is the main character, a loan shark, thief of souls and vampire. 

The mummy is brutal, enclosed in a closet, that suddenly becomes lucid.

The student is initially kind-hearted, but during the play he becomes more and more cynical. He desires  the beautiful but unapproachable Miss, in the room of the hyacinths. The philanthropist Hummel is a bloodthirsty master. The officer is in fact a former servant. The mummy is not a mummy. The adorable Miss is sick ...

In the world of the Ghost Sonata there is no honesty and the truth kills. "Nobody is what he seems to be."
