Theatre visits in Gothenburg


GEST is proud to present the World Premiere of VOICES.

First-hand accounts of the asylum system and seeking refuge in a Europe closing its doors, in the words of people who have experienced it.

If your voice was heard, what would you say?

 “The political system is treating the people as if they are numbers… it’s funny here in the migration system. When they distribute the people on the rooms they distribute numbers not persons. They are talking about numbers.”

GOTHENBURG ENGLISH STUDIO THEATRE – GEST – is delighted to present the Scandinavian premiere of the award-winning Four Minutes Twelve Seconds by James Fritz

10 April- 8 May 2018

A shockingly funny thriller in a time of selfies and sexting.

A morally terrifying drama which shines a light on growing up, parental/peer pressure and acceptance of responsibly in the #metoo age.

“He says they all do it. These kids, you know, they’ve got their phones. Film everything. Can’t say I blame them. I would at that age.”

Di and David, the parents  of 17-year old Jack, have devoted their whole lives to giving Jack every opportunity they never had. But when something private and personal goes viral it hreatens to ruin everything they’ve striven for. As events begin to accelerate, Di and David start to doubt Jack’s closest friends, Jack himself and ultimately themselves – who can they trust?


Four Minutes Twelve Seconds premiered at Hampstead theatre in 2014 and then transferred to the West End and won “Most Promising Playwright” prize at the Critics Circle Theatre Awards 2015 and was nominated for an Olivier Award.
