≈[ALMOST EQUAL TO] by Jonas Hassen Khemiri and translated into English by Rachel Wilsson-Broyles runs at Pillsbury House Theater in Minneapolis from September 16 - October 22. For more information and tickets, click here.
Jonas Hassen Khemiri is one of Sweden’s best-known contemporary writers, and his 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.
