In The Stronger, two actresses, one married and shopping for Christmas presents for her family, the other single and sitting and reading silently, run into each other in a café.
"'The Stronger', though Strindberg's shortest play, packs just as much vitality and impact as some of his better known plays and is full of ironic poignancy." - Austin Live Theatre
"'The Stronger,' [is] a taut miniature about the meeting of two actresses and rivals" - The New York Times
The Stronger premiered at the Dagmar Theatre in Copenhagen in March of 1889, under the direction of Dane Viggo Schiwe.
