Writings, 1939

Experimental theatre!

Bergman writes about two upcoming plays at Mäster Olofsgården.

About the text

Bergman writes the following text about The Golden Chariot and The Hangman:

This evening of theatre is intended for SFP and their guests. There are two options: either you will be there or you won't. Our intention is to present works that are not staged by professional theatres. [...] Our greatest strengths go up in smoke. We wish to do our part to honestly present these worthy pieces. Your attention shall drive us onwards. 

[Note: SFP owned Mäster Olofsgården]
