Klockriketeatern, a
respected theatre company
that performs in the Swedish-
speaking part of
Helsinki,
had a big success with
Mr.
Green får besök
.  The
translation was done by
Martin Kurtén (above), who
played Mr. Green.  The
director was
Kristin Olsoni
(right, holding the umbrella).  
Ross was played by
Joachim
Wigelius
(below right).  The
play was so popular that it
was revived several times.


A True Pearl at
Klockriketeatern
      

"What a  performance
Klockriketeatern treats us to!  
It has to become the
theatrical success of the
spring in town.  It's the Nordic
premiere of the play written
by the American Jeff Baron. It
has received the KulturPreis
Europa in 2001. It’s not
surprising.

This is a play with its arms full
of warmth.  One reason for
theatre is to increase our
understanding of ourselves
and other people’s lives. This
story succeeds in that, without
a shallow happy end.  We
carry with us a peaceful
feeling of trust, that the star
of goodness shines
somewhere."
