The Father

THE CAPTAIN, age 54, is driven to a mental breakdown by LAURA, his wife, age 36, in their struggle over the future of their daughter BERTHA, age 15. LAURA conspires with the newly arrived DR. ÖSTERMARK and her older half-brother, the town PASTOR to convince her husband that he is not the father of BERTHA. Unwitting accomplice in this is the Captain’s childhood nursemaid, age 72, who in the end coaxes THE CAPTAIN into a straightjacket.
