News   Norwegian Nightsongs at Royal Court from Feb. 27

As part of the Royal Court's current season of international playwrights, Feb. 27 sees the opening night of Nightsongs, an English adaptation of Jon Fosse's Norwegian play Natta Syng Sine Songar.

Nightsongs portrays the problems faced by a young couple with a new baby - he, a writer, can't go out and remains unpublished, while she can't stay in and takes a lover.

Relying on the poetry and rhythm of language as much as the plot, this is likely to be as successful as most of the Royal Court's international plays, and will provide London audiences with an opportunity to enjoy the work of a writer whom many Norwegians consider to be a twenty-first century Ibsen.
