Pariah: The play involves a battle of brains between two men, "Mr. X and Mr. Y'' in a Darwinian struggle for survival. The men are in a room in a farmhouse during a storm. A box of gold sits on the table, for which Mr. X is responsible. Both have committed crimes in their personal history. Mr. X, in his youth, murdered a man, but he was not caught, and he explains why it is right that he avoided punishment. As for Mr. Y, he forged a financial document, which secured a loan. For this he was caught and sent to prison, and he explains why it was unfair that he was punished. As both stories are shared during the play, it sets the men against one another. Which one is really the most guilty, and have either of them atoned for his sin?-- summary from wikipedia.com

Swedish playwright August Strindberg's early works ushered in a new era of gritty realism, but his later works strayed from this style as his personal interests began to veer toward mysticism and the occult.

Simoon by Erik Chisholm( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Simoon--the violent, hot wind that blows in the North African desert--gives its name to August Strindberg's psychological drama, published in 1889 and later described by the Glaswegian composer Erik Chisholm as exciting and frightening. Third in a triptych of operas which the composer wrote after his move to South Africa in the late 1940s, his adaptation of Strindberg's play evokes the desert setting through a blend of the Hindustani scales he had studies in wartime India and a skilful use of free twelve-tone technique, but was never performed with orchestra in his own lifetime"--Container
