My play Absence, winner of the Jean Kennedy Smith Award and nominee for the Elliot Norton and IRNE awards for best new play, will get its European debut this fall at the Oslo Nye Trikkestallen. The play will be performed in Norwegian, and appear under its Norwegian title, Fravær. I have worked with the translator, Cecilie Enersen, to make sure that this version matches the language and spirit of the original.
So, if you happen to be in the land of Ibsen in the fall, I hope that you will find time to see it! The run begins on Thursday, September 24. Tickets may be purchased here.
The production will be directed by Birgitte Victoria Svendsen, and feature Marit Østbye as Helen.
