The Scandinavian American Theater Company (SATC) introduces a new generation of Nordic playwrights in a series of
staged readings representing Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland, and Denmark, including Greenland and the Faroe Islands.
SATC is a collective of theater artists founded to provide Scandinavian perspectives through the new generation of Scandinavian playwrights and theater artists. SATC presents contemporary plays and inventive takes on the classics from the Nordic region, which includes
Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands. SATC is committed to strengthening the relationship between Scandinavia and the United States through collaborations and interdisciplinary artistic exchange that examine and challenge the cultural status quo.
Written by Jón Atli Jónasson (Iceland, 2005) and directed by Andrew O’Kane (U.S.). During a raging blizzard, the Icelandic Ministry of Defense calls Johnny – an art student, recently returned from Holland – and informs him that his brother Julius is missing after fighting abroad.
While Johnny is waiting by the phone for news, suddenly Honey – a young, beautiful girl – enters from upstairs after a one-night-stand with Johnny’s father, and Julius’ friend Pesi – on the run from two drug dealers – knocks on the door. This is a unique play about drugs, dreams, and escapism – and three young people in a complex world, trying to settle in.
