A Reading of a New Play
By Sara Stridsberg
English Translation by Verne Moberg
Directed by Lisa Pettersson Bearpark
Remember Garbo as Swedens Queen Christina (in Rouben Mamoulians film classic from 1934)? Heres todays update.
This is the story of a headstrong Girl King in a northern clime who could not do what was expected of her: to marry and bear heirs. So she gave up the throne of this snowy realm and not even her Philosopher-in-Residence could salvage this saga of birth, love, and death.
From the country that has become
the world's most democratic monarchy.
