Alex Schulman’s Tröstrapporter Premieres
Tröstrapporter, marking Alex Schulman’s debut as a playwright and director, premiered on Friday September 16th at the Swedish national stage for theater, Dramaten.
The monologue about a man coming to terms with the events of his life, returning in glimpses to traumas of childhood, is performed by award-winning actor Gustaf Skarsgård and has received rave reviews after its premiere:
“Tröstrapporter is a short story embodied. […] The performance continues to grow after the applause has ceased.”
“Tröstrapporter is, for me, an internal face-off, a self-reconciliation, with two painful points of departure, which prove to be connected, but nevertheless pulling in slightly different directions.”
“It is also well directed. Clean. It takes almost half an hour […] before it strikes me that it is directed at all. And that’s a point of praise.”
