Here is a bit more about the four plays:
After All – written & directed by Támara Aalto
A tragicomedy in which two worlds meet, and the similarities and differences between them are revealed. The most interesting people may not be the ones who’ve studied the most, but could be the ones who’ve had more experiences in their lives. Unfortunately, they’re sometimes the ones who are invisible to society.
WOMAN – Pauliina Myllyntaus
MAN – Leben Norrie

My Struggle – written, directed and performed by Vello Ruus
An autobiographical monologue about life’s struggles.

Bye Bye Brexit! – written & directed by Ulf Persson
Oh, Brexit what shall we do with you? Leave won over Remain by 52–48 and – surprise, surprise – Brexit was here! In other words, as somebody cleverly put it, Pride and Prejudice defeated Sense and Sensibility. Thank you, Jane Austen! But if you don’t want to leave, then what can you do? As an ordinary citizen? As a top politician? We’ll show you.
HE – Ulf Persson
SHE – Emily-Rose Matthews

Santa Innit? – written & directed by Zoë Chandler
It’s early November, which naturally means that Christmas is in full swing. So here’s a traditional yuletide tale of surprising revelations, arguing, and heavy drinking. Oh – and presents! Although it seems that some people are more into taking than giving, which Joe finds out when he receives an unexpected visit from Santa and events take a bizarre and comic turn.
JOE – Salomon Marttila
SANTA – Zoë Chandler
