When the prince came to the village

Trappscenen, Skellefteå

Gunnar Eklund's narrative performance - a free interpretation of Torgny Lindgren's story "I Brokiga blad water".

“One day when Aunt Lydia was standing at the kitchen table - yes, it was during the war and she had just cooked three pork legs that she
would pick the meat off - Prince Eugene himself knocked gently on the door three times before stepping inside. Aunt Lydia
did not know at all who it was and shouted: Location! Place! Prince Eugene immediately stood guard but it was not for him
she screamed, but ate the Danish dog Lola that she got instead of paying a nasal from Boden who stole in
Bygdsiljum… ”

What the truth is in this - that Prince Eugene would have visited Aunt Lydia in Norsjö - is not
so easy to know then her nephew, and also the author of the story, is called Torgny Lindgren. He once wrote
to Gunnar Eklund that "one should not be restrained when lying."

Weat Västerbottensteatern are very happy to have Gunnar Eklund back in the house with a completely new Torgny performance. Few actors have interpreted Torgny Lindgren's texts and characters as often as he has. Everything from Skrävel Jani in Ormens väg on Helleberget to the story of Skräddare Molin which was also recorded for TV. And now, ten Torgny productions later, we proudly present When the Prince Came to the Village - a free interpretation of In Brokiga Blad's water - a colorful story about life and love of art.
