Winterreise by Fredrik Brattberg

When Anne and Alfred bring their newborn baby Charlotte home neither of them expect the uncertainties that she adds to their lives. Wandering delicately between the normal and the abnormal, this one act play ruthlessly exposes what might be missing in us as mothers and fathers, and tells a quietly distressing story of two new parents who can't step off the train they've embarked on.

Fredrik Brattberg

Brattberg is an award-winning Norwegian playwright and composer, and was recipient of the Ibsen Award in 2012.
