The Pelican is a haunted play by one of Sweden’s most renowned playwrights, August Strindberg. A mother’s squandering of her family’s funds is revealed after the father's death… with explosive results.
J. Michael Whalen
"In The Pelican, director Ross Heath and collaborators punch above their weight class to spin a taut, breathless production from a lesser-known Swedish text and modest budget."
DC Theatre Scene
"The Pelican, long abandoned by modern producers, has happily returned to the DC stage in a brilliantly staged one-act play."
