Don't say anything.

A chance encounter between two ex-rivals.

An actress searches for someone to confide in.

An old friend pleads for support.

A critic demands to be heard.

In 1888, playwright August Strindberg wrote The Stronger as part of an Experimental Theatre Project. The 20-minute “playette” was a two hander for two characters called Madame X and Mademoiselle Y where one speaks and one doesn't.

In 2015, playwright Nathan Joe continues this exploration of speaking and listening with three more one-sided conversations, alongside a modern update of Strindberg's original, written specifically for The Basement bar. Witness as friends, strangers and colleagues unravel as they confront each other.

Presented by Theatrewhack, directed by Patrick Graham
