KinkyFish takes Strindberg's ideas further. Devised and presented in London in 2009, this adaptation of A Dream Play is surreal storytelling at its best, as nine actors, always present on stage, constantly transform to take the audience along the dream's journey. Locations, and even languages, change without rhyme or reason and a locked door becomes an obsessively recurrent image.Company KinkyFish.
