The almost-true story of what actually happened

BY EVA JOHANSSON & LOUISE LÖWENBERG
Directed by Charissa Martinkauppi

Tue 7 – Sat 11 May

In June 2010 Thommy Berggren and Mikael Persbrandt, icons of Nordic theatre and film, announced that they were collaborating on a masterpiece. Only one week before the show was due to open, they cancelled all the performances. This is the almost-true story of what actually happened when two male creative geniuses met to produce the greatest work of their careers, and failed. Oh, and Thommy and Mikael? They’re played by women.

DIRECTORS’ CUTS SEASON 2019

The Directors’ Cuts season is a programme of contemporary theatre presented by the four graduating directors from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and featuring work by acting, design and production students. Now in its thirteenth year and at The Wardrobe Theatre for the third time, the Directors’ Cuts season is firmly established in the Bristol theatre calendar. It has a reputation for showcasing fresh, vibrant and cutting edge theatre work by some of the finest emerging talent in UK theatre. Diverse and highly charged, this is a season of provocative plays which all have an important relevance in today’s society.

“Contemporary drama with extraordinary insightfulness, vivacity and theatrical prowess.”
Jenny Stephens, Artistic Director, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

Students developing and growing in confidence during their time here, seeing their work reaching professional standards in approach and execution; a student who intends to be a stage manager producing a wonderful sound design; a first year student making a lovely recording of a song for their recording project; tracking the careers of former students and seeing them be successful; being able to find a job opportunity for a recent graduate.
