About Family Drama
Akvavit Theatre presents two one-acts presented in partnership with the International Voices Project. Included are the U.S. premiere of "Goliath" by Maria Tryti Vennerød, translated by May-Brit Akerholt and directed by Co-Artistic Director Kirstin Franklin, and "The Returning" by Fredrik Brattberg, translated by Henning Hegland and directed by Lee Peters.
"Goliath" retells the classic biblical story as a family drama in which David and Goliath are brothers, and Goliath lives with the myth of his favored heroic little brother.
In "The Returning," a mother and a father are grieving the loss of their son, Gustav, whom they assume to be dead, but not all is what it seems.
Recommended for ages 12 and up.
