Scenes from a marriage

The play tells the story of Johan, a university professor who abandons his lawyer wife, Marianne, and their two daughters for false happiness in the arms of twenty-three-year-old Paula. The story explores the disintegration of the family unit and describes the shock of separation. With keen, at times ruthless, at times amusing observation Bergman describes the forces driving the couple’s life and the pressures exerted on the people involved.
