Youth play
Swedish text – English translation

Written during a Royal Court Residency in 2019 and presented at a reading in London at the Royal Court. It is a poetic chamber play about 3 women – Marielle and Stina, who are both 19 years old, and Carina, Stina’s mother. The play explores mental illness and complicated relationships on the border between love and friendship, as well as what it is like to be a girl and a woman. As a parallel topic stands the question of man’s relation to animals.
