Act/Terminal 3 Tickets

The Coronet TheatreLondon
A double-bill of hard-hitting and deceptively simple short plays from Lars Norén, often considered Sweden’s greatest contemporary writer.

Act/Terminal 3 tickets are now available for this incredible double bill of contemporary theatre.

Heavily influenced by the works of Harold Pinter and Samuel Beckett, Lars Noren is widely considered Sweden’s greatest contemporary writer. His darkly pointed and realistic short plays are brought to life by director Anthony Neilson (Stitching, The Wonderful World of Dissocia, and most recently The Prudes at Royal Court), one of the most extraordinary – and controversial – dramatists working today.

Reimagined in a near future USA in the aftermath of a second civil war, Act is a prescient interrogation of faith, conscience and atrocity and what is excusable during war. In a hospital examination room, a doctor assesses a female prisoner, accused of being a terrorist and now on hunger strike.

Then, storylines intertwine in Terminal 3 – a young couple await the birth of their first child, while in the same place two people wait to identify the body of their dead son. How does the birth – and death – of a child affect the lives and relationships of the parents?

Lars Norén, playwright, poet and novelist, is often considered to be the greatest living Swedish writer. He’s an influential writer in the dark realist tradition of Scandinavian writing – an heir to August Strindberg, and a precursor to the bleak landscapes of Nordic noir.
