Sore Throats Summary

Strindberg, suburbia, and surrealism collide in Mr. Brenton’s powerful, disquieting study of what happens to a 39 year-old housewife when her marriage crashes and burns. Haunted by her alternately brutal and tender ex-husband, lured into demented modes of liberation by her new younger-generation roommate, she begins a riveting downward trajectory with a wholly unpredictable end. Stanley Kauffmann wrote “Howard Brenton’s Sore Throats is a candidate for greatness.” Howard Brenton (b. 1946), infamous in England for his artistically daring and politically provocative work, is considered one of Britain’s leading playwrights.
