SA KA LA takes place in a moment of crisis within a family when some of its members know a piece of bad news while the others have yet to hear about it. A mother has fallen victim to a stroke on her 60th birthday, and it takes her three grown children, Nora, Hilde, and Ola completely by surprise. Meanwhile, the rest of the family can't be reached as they wait for her party to begin. "Sa Ka La" is not a Norwegian phrase. It's some of the unformed words the Mother makes after suffering her stroke

Original Playwright - Jon Fosse (Nokon kjem til a komme, 1993) (English Translation by Harry Lane and Adam Seelig)

Synopsis:

A poetic play of paranoia and sexual jealousy by one of the world's most celebrated playwrights, Someone is Going to Come involves a man and a woman who move to an old, run-down house in the middle of nowhere in order to be alone together. From the beginning, however, they grow anxious that "someone is going to come". And sure enough, someone does come, someone whose presence unleashes hidden jealousies that threaten to shatter the couple's relationship. This all unfolds through Fosse's distinctively austere lyricism, captured in a new English translation by Harry Lane and Adam Seelig.

Telemakos

Original Playwright - Jon Fosse

Warm

A house, a pier, an ocean. Two men lingering at the edge of the sea. They wait for the woman they can barely recall but will never forget. As forgotten memories and secret desires once more float to the surface, so too does a love story in all its beautiful and heartbreaking forms. Jon Fosse is Europe's most prolific and most performed living playwright. He has been likened to 'Ibsen for a new generation and this play is no exception. This is a play of tender precision, a dreamscape, a play stripped down to its emotional essentials, a play for our age and for the people we have become.

Synopsis:

A 40-ish woman, dressed in too-youthful urban gear and white high heels, talks to a man whose drab trenchcoat and clunky briefcase signify "middle-management nobody". Her clothes mark her out as a prostitute, but the dialogue is heightened enough to make this feel like more than a pick-up. He takes her to his hotel room and she strips down to her bra and panties, but things don't go further. We find out he is married, but are not confident that this is what holds him back.
