BELONGINGS

The Gothenburg English Studio Theatre presents:

litenThe Scandinavian premiere BELONGINGS

by the young female award-winning playwright Morgan Lloyd Malcolm.

13 March -12 April 2014

GESTs production of Belongings has received fantastic reviews in the press.

"With effective staging and sterling performances, GEST make Belongings a direct hit"
Belongings is an explosive yet tender and witty play about four individuals desperately defending the choices they've made, whilst struggling to find a place to belong. A young female soldier returns from Afghanistan to a home she no longer recognises or connects with. From the deserts of a modern war to the battleground of a family kitchen, she navigates family politics, old relationships, and the memory of betrayal. For more information and see the trailer
