Our Future Stories

December, 2020–February, 2021

“How will the pandemic shape our theatrical stories?”

In Our Future Stories, seven playwrights from the Nordic countries reflect on how the pandemic will impact the future stories we will tell on stage. The project is part of #UN75, the world’s largest conversation on our collective future and a celebration of the 75th anniversary of the United Nations. Each playwright joins this global conversation by writing about the future they envision.
