Jon Fosse

Published by Oberon

Norwegian Jon Fosse is Europe's most produced playwright (900 productions staged in more than 40 languages)

In their different ways, the plays in this Collection are existential suspense stories, centred around a common concept of time

The past is recreated through present moments, the future hinted at through shared memories, yet experienced from different perspectives

Fosse's drama explores life lived in unexpected ways, with a sense of otherness pervading the present and colouring the characters' relationships

In Suzannah, the whole life of Suzannah Ibsen unfolds as she waits for her playwriting husband to come home

In Sleep, one day captures the lives of a young woman and a young man as they grow into middle-age and old age

Living Secretly asks questions about how to live with and open up to one's actions through sequences of time

In The Dead Dogs, lives are shockingly disrupted by an event that changes the directions of their future

Warm's characters move back and forth through time to capture past images and actions, in an effort to make sense of the present

Telemakos re-invents an old classic from a contemporary point of view

Fosse's dramatic voice is full of poetic intensity, yet wryly ironic, and with a sense of the comedy of the human condition
