Danish original text
The play is an adaptation of Kaspar Colling Nielsen’s novel from 2013. Denmark is at civil war. The people has had it with financial crisis and the politician’s unkept promises. At the battlefront, in the centre of Copenhagen, Henry and the love of his life, Leonora, are ready to fight. 450 years later we meet Henry again. He and his dog, Geoff are living an eternal and happy life thanks to an advanced stem cell programme, that not only keep humans alive, but also give their pets human capacities. Despite huge fortune and luxury, Henry cannot escape facing his past.
DEN DANSKE BORGERKRIG 2018 – 2024 is a tale about what can happen when democracy fades and humans lose faith in love and solidarity.
