Terminal 3 and Act
by Lars Noren
Translated from the Swedish by Marita Lindholm Gochman
A double bill of short plays from Swedish master-playwright Lars Norén, Terminal 3 and Act are fearless inquiries of time, mortality and power. Deceptively simple and darkly funny they contain just enough humour to make their questions bearable.
“I wonder what they’re doing here…The couple sitting over there.”
In a hospital, a young couple await the birth of their first child. In the same space, an estranged middle-aged couple wait to identify the body of their dead son. Terminal 3 is a dream-like exploration of loss; a ghost story for the living.
“I’ve brought him up to be a good and loyal citizen….I hope he’ll never treat me with the kind of brutality and cruelty that you’re showing your father.”
In an examination room in Germany, a male doctor assesses a female prisoner, accused of terrorism and now on hunger strike. Act is a prescient interrogation of faith, conscience and atrocity.
