Three Contemporary Swedish Plays
For much of the English-speaking world Swedish theatre begins and ends with August Strindberg. Yet amazing theatre is happening throughout all of the Nordic region that doesn't reach our shores because of the language barrier. In these new translations three prominent Swedish authors have seen their work on the Chicago stage through Akvavit Theatre productions. Chad Eric Bergman's fleet translations capture the energy, silence, and humor of contemporary Swedish theatre. The three plays are the following: Hand in Hand by Sofia Fredén, The frozen on the square (1982) by Lucas Svensson, and GHOSTS & Zombies by Henrik Ibsen & Gustav Tegby.
