Theatre, 1961

Playing with Fire

Bergman returns to Strindberg's comedy about idleness, jealousy and passion which he first produced for radio in 1947.

About the production

After producing over 30 radio plays in 15 years, Bergman took a long break from this medium after the airing of Playing with Fire. Besides a live recording of The Investigation from The Royal Dramatic Theatre's stage in the spring of 1966, his next radio production wasn't until 1984, with A Hearsay.
