Danish text

Entertaining and thought provoking comedy about youngsters and computer gaming that gets out of control. The text is freely based on Ludvig Holberg’s Erasmus Montanus and can be played by four actors. Rasmus returns home to his family, girlfriend and childhood community from his boarding school completely changed and speaks an alien computer language no one understands and demands to be called E-Rasmus because he has won the E-Championship (a computer competition). Can those around him get Rasmus back to his former self? The play premieres in Denmark on 26 February 2022 at Teater Vestvolden in a co-production between Bornholms Teater, Vendsyssel Teater and Teater Vestvolden. The play will not be available for production elsewhere before the first opening.
