• Unga Klara

Suzanne Osten returns to Unga Klara with a play by Gunilla Linn Persson. A story about love between siblings and the farcical aspects of living with a violent father in a marital wreckage. It’s a fun, touching and brutal play with newly written live music by Maria Johansson Josephsson. A slapstick in many layers for the entire family!


NOTE! This production will be presented in filmed version that will be shown at a cinema. Before the viewing there will be an introduction with participation from the production and the Swedish selection committee. After the viewing there will be possibility for questions.

This program activity can only be booked d by visitors that have some kind of festival pass!

From 8 years old

Motivation of the jury: 

Performing art so well composed that the end product becomes something more than its components.

Interplayed acting performances with eccentric energy in a violent world that is bigger than life itself.

Depicting child abuse through slapstick is a bold and effective move.

An intense theater experience that literally gives a slap in the face and a punch to the gut.
