This fall, we elevate slapstick comedy to entirely new heights! This year's performance takes place on the fifth floor, where Sausage Maker Julius Augustsson (Claes Malmberg) reigns on his luxurious rooftop terrace, adjacent to Augustsson's Sausage Factory.

The story is set after the end of World War II, and the economy is booming again for Augustsson's Sausage Factory, primarily thanks to the huge success of the Pepper Sausage with its secret recipe. Julius rejoices in the success, while the local sausage competitor Ejdar Kulvert is less pleased but equally curious.

In conjunction with the birthday of Julius's delightful wife Tuttan (Jessica Heribertsson), a grand party is planned on the top floor. But things quickly spiral out of control when Julius receives anonymous blackmail letters threatening to reveal the secret recipe unless he immediately stops producing the sausage. Julius, who loves his business and needs money for the rumored house on the Riviera, gets entangled in a web of intrigue and comic misunderstandings.

And when Tuttan finds one of the blackmail letters, she believes it is directed at her, leading her to reveal her own secrets. Questions pile up: Who will take over the factory? Why is the military there? Who is writing the blackmail letters? Is the house on the Riviera really paid for? And what is the secret ingredient in the Pepper Sausage?

The party becomes a chaotic circus where we get to enjoy Claes Malmberg as the robust, thirsty, and mostly stressed and pressured sausage manufacturer Julius. Jojje Jönsson as the confused, somewhat slow, and slightly senile accountant Lundström. Jeanette Capocci as the quick-witted housekeeper Berta who always has a sharp reply and a good solution close at hand. Mikael Riesebeck as the clumsy, machine-crazy, and eventually drugged foreman Bergman. We also see Jessica Heribertsson as Julius's pleasure-loving but oh-so-determined wife Tuttan.

We will enjoy a delightful comedian duo with Linnéa Lexfors and Jennie Rosengren playing the similar yet different daughters Nora and Ditte. Add Pär Nymark as a suspicious but equally fainting military officer named Major Håård. And the sneaky, extremely unlucky sausage recipe spy Rutger, played by Annika Andersson's son Alexander Korenado. What a gang – as clear as sausage broth!

With a cast of fantastic actors under the script by Håkan Klamas and Niklas Holtne, it becomes a summer performance full of laughter, madness, unexpected twists, and surprises. A show directed by Niklas Holtne with assistant director Annika Andersson offers a spectacular slapstick tour, complete with explosive finales and breathtaking stunts. This is a slapstick extravaganza that definitely doesn't hold back!

And last but not least, the audience must promise not to reveal the top-secret ingredient in the sausage…
