Bygdens söner

The sons of the village

Boliden, Skellefteå

Note! The performance is in Swedish!

When Roger and Patrik were twelve years old, they were first on the scene in a traffic accident and saved a life together. That summer they were the pride of the village. Just a few months later, their friendship was over forever. What really happened? Twenty-five years later, Roger lives in the village, deeply rooted in the hunting team and the country store. Here also lives the mainstay of local cultural life Birgitta, her husband Staffan who is an expert in just about everything, and the newly moved photographer Beata who is desperately trying to understand the social codes of the countryside. Then Patrik suddenly moves home. Old ghosts come to life, and soon Rogers' place in the community is threatened.

Peter Jansson makes an incredible acting performance when he takes on all five roles. A fun and tender monologue about who we were and who we became, and what it really is that creates community.

Anders Duus has written the script and Sara Giese is directing. A co-production between Riksteatern and Östgötateatern.
