The extracts have been specially chosen and translated for the Festival by the Company whose Co-Artistic Director Christina Anthony-Collins is a translator of Scandinavian plays at The Royal Court.


Nordic Theatre Company is a London based company formed by two Scandinavian directors well established in the British Theatre World; Christina Anthony-Collins (from Denmark) and  Marie Parker Shaw (from Sweden). The aims of the company are to promote and preserve Scandinavian literature and drama, classical as well as modern.
