The Father
A.R.T. Season
February 9, 1990

Laura torments her husband Captain Lassen by suggesting that their daughter Bertha may not be his. In addition she indicates to family and friends that her vulnerable husband is losing his mind. Adolph fights back by trying to assert his authority over the direction of his young daughter's upbringing. In the end Laura drives him mad, and he dies a victim of her desperate fury.
