WHAT: Auditions for our autumn production, ‘Ingrid’ by Ulf Persson
WHEN: Saturday 26 August 13:00–18:00
WHERE: FINNBRIT, Fredrikinkatu 20 A 9, Helsinki
Director: Anna Olkinuora
Assistant director: Ulf Persson
Ingrid is a play about Ingrid Bergman, Swedish actress. She was for many years Hollywood’s darling and received thousands of fan letters every week. All that came to an abrupt end when she left Hollywood to make films with the Italian film director Roberto Rossellini. They fell in love and she had to make a great personal sacrifice – she had to leave her little daughter Pia behind. The moral outcry in the USA was enormous with condemnations even in the senate, and the fan letters became hate letters
Ingrid takes place towards the end of her life. We are in Ingrid’s apartment in New York and she has invited her daughter Pia to dinner. She wants to explain – before it’s too late.
Rehearsals will be in September and October on Saturdays and Sundays 13:00–18:00.
There will be five performances: 9, 10, 11, 14 and 15 November 2017 at the Warehouse, Arkadia International Bookshop, Nervanderinkatu 11, Helsinki.
