Pacific Resident Theatre presents
AUTUMN AND WINTER
By Lars Norén
Translated from the Swedish by
Marita Lindholm Gochman
Directed by Dana Jackson
AUTUMN AND WINTER examines the relationship of older parents and their two adult daughters, during their regular monthly dinner. The play is rich, and powerfully emotional with bursts of humor, “Well worth experiencing if you have a taste for domestic combat.” –Michael Billington, The Guardian.
Often compared to Edward Albee, Lars Norén is regarded as Sweden’s greatest living playwright. PRT is thrilled to present the United States Premiere of this powerful piece.

Myron Meisel, Stage Raw:
“Artistic Director Marilyn Fox made a bold choice in choosing this particular play to inaugurate PRT’s 30th season.”
“Obviously a tricky undertaking, the play benefits from Director Dana Jackson’s efforts to find a plausible tone for the innate artificiality of the arguments within a resolutely realistic context.”
“Bittersweet it is to contemplate the late Norman Scott’s Spartan middle-class scenic design.”
“Noren tends to saddle each character with deeply unsympathetic flaws…still, this work and the production transcend the earlier limitations to deliver one sledgehammer wallop after another, and the emotional workout benefits from it’s fundamental integrity of vision.”
