The tranquil life of a well-to-do family summering at the seaside is disrupted by the arrival of a “friend,” who has long harbored a romantic attraction to the wife of the son.  
Strindberg, known as a “father of Modern Drama”, is famous for Miss JulieA Dream Play and The Dance of Death. This short play, in a lighter vein, was inspired by his own love triangle with Baron Wrangel and Siri Von Essen, who was to become his first wife.
