American Elektra and other plays


This e-book contains six plays written by the international acknowledged dramatist Stig Dalager. His works are translated and published in more than 25 countries all over the world. The plays are: Lord and Shadow, I Count the Hours, The Dream, Faces, Family Night and American Elektra.
Stig Dalager’s plays take place inside your head or in the world outside. Some of them take place inside and outside your head simultaneously – between Denmark and the world outside Denmark, between dream and reality. Dalager experiments with the form and the format – monologue, dual monologue, chamber drama, the invisible visible on the stage, realism and symbolism. However, one kind of law – the theatre’s fundamental law – he observes with almost zealous care: The law governing the theatre’s three unities.
The plays in this selection of Stig Dalager’s dramatic authorship have all been staged or are to be staged around the world – New York, Washington, Moscow, Beijing, Berlin, Wien, Lodz, Sofia, Tsiblisi and many other cities. In several theatres, they are part of the repertoire.
