Plays Six
134,00 lei


Jon Fosse has been called the Beckett of the 21st century (Le Monde), and the Royal Court production of Nightsongs was dubbed Waiting for Godot without the gags. Just as Becketts plays — and those of all great playwrights — grew out of their time, and influenced the current styles of drama, and were part of what brought their times forward, so do Fosses plays now. Fosse: Plays Six marks the culmination of this Norwegian playwrights body of work for the stage to be published in the English language.

The volume includes the plays Rambuku, Freedom, Over There, These Eyes, Girl in Yellow Raincoat, Christmas Tree Song and Sea.

Rambuku: Two people. One finds it difficult to speak. The other attempts to understand. But what is Rambuku? Or who is Rambuku?

Freedom: There is a sense of otherness in Fosses work that challenges our notions of a concept such as freedom. This play questions if freedom, as we often understand it, is perhaps a prison.

Over There: A woman follows a man to his death. But do they see the same images on the way to the top of the mountain?

These Eyes: A snapshot of the dreamlike state of life. The characters exist in an in-between space which becomes their reality.

Girl in Yellow Raincoat: An examination of our collective weakness, and the fragility of children. It asks questions about notions surrounding fear.

Christmas Tree Song: A man celebrates Christmas alone (and reflects in a somewhat ironic way) on his life as he attempts to put up a Christmas tree.

Sea: A group of people gathered in a kind of limbo, on a ship, disappearing into something unknown.
