≈ [almost equal to] - ASI Night at Pillsbury House + Theatre

≈[almost equal to] | September 15 – October 22, 2017
By Jonas Hassen Khemiri
Directed by Noël Raymond

From a staged reading at ASI in 2016, Jonas Hassen Khemiri’s play ≈[almost equal to], directed by Noël Raymond, will debut in the U.S. as a full collaborative production with ASI for a run at Pillsbury House + Theatre, September 16 – October 4, 2017.

On ASI night, have a pre-show dinner or happy hour at FIKA, drive a few blocks south to Pillsbury House + Theatre to catch the show and stay for a post-show discussion with the director, actors and Rachel Wilson-Broyles, the play’s translator and ASI Swedish language instructor, who worked with Jonas to adapt this body of work for English speaking audiences.

Hassen Khemiri is one of Sweden’s best-known contemporary writers, and this outrageously dark political comedy ≈ [Almost Equal To] premiered to sold-out audiences at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm. In the play, everyone is overrun by numbers, begging, earning, scheming and stealing as they collide with the economy surrounding them. Politically subversive, ≈ [almost equal to] is a sharp exploration of money in modern life.

The cast includes Randy Reyes, Sun Mee Chomet, Paul De Cordova, Tracey Maloney and Jay Eisenberg

“Genial contemporary criticism”
— Svenska Dagbladet

“Moving Khemiri play is shaking up the market”
— Upsala Nya Tidning

 “Supernaturally good”
— Sveriges Radio: Kulturnytt

“Pounding ears and teary eyes”

FIKA (located at the American Swedish Institute – 2600 Park Avenue, Minneapolis MN  55407) serves dinner and offers happy hour specials from 3 - 8 p.m. Wednesday nights.  No reservations necessary.
