Family Drama: Two Norwegian Plays
The two one-acts presented in partnership with the International Voices Project include the U.S. premiere of Goliath by Maria Tryti Vennerød, translated by May-Brit Akerholt and directed by Co-Artistic Director Kirstin Franklin and The Returning by Fredrik Brattberg, translated by Henning Hegland and directed by Lee Peters.
Goliath retells the classic biblical story as a family drama in which David and Goliath are brothers, and Goliath lives with the myth of his favored heroic little brother.
In The Returning, a mother and a father are grieving the loss of their son, Gustav, whom they assume to be dead, but not all is what it seems.
Goliath and The Returning will play together September 24 October 13, 2019, at Rivendell Theatre in Edgewater.
