Night Sings Its Songs

by Jon Fosse

 A modern day tragedy about two people who love each other desperately, but in an  attempt to find each other again they push each other to the extreme and spin  into a downward spiral of miscommunication.

Jon Fosse, the Norwegian dramatist, novelist and poet has written numerous plays, and also novels and poetry. He is one of the most performed playwrights in contemporary theatre – in 2002, there were 130 productions of his plays in Europe only. Fosse’s work is translated to more than 20 languages. He is the recipient of a number of awards and honours. He is often compared to Henrik Ibsen, and has become famous particularly for having created his own, unique theatrical language, through which he reflects his contemporary society. He creates an intense and poetic universe that irresistibly draws the audiences in.
