Published by Nick Hern Books

A mesmeric but little-known play by the woman who was reputedly the inspiration for Strindberg's Miss Julie and for Ibsen's Hedda Gabler ...

One sunny day in Paris, Gustave Alland, famous artist and philanderer, visits Louise Strandberg who's convalescing in her brother's studio

Gustave soon casts her under his spell and, in a vain attempt to escape, Louise exiles herself to her provincial home-town in Sweden

But then a letter arrives which propels her back to Paris and into his arms and for a brief moment, ecstasy is hers ...

Victoria Benedictsson was a groundbreaking Swedish novelist and playwright who had a scandalous affair which led to her suicide soon after completing this play in 1888
