About the play
On All Fours is a flowing description of a young woman in the inner city of Stockholm who lives her life balancing on a knife’s edge. We follow her from place to place, drinking, taking drugs and having sex, as a way to get through the day and rise above her reality. Her plan seems successful, but simultaneously becomes increasingly tangled.
