Leif will return!

By on February 28, 2017

Leif Andrée’s acclaimed performance Leif gets revival on May 16. The play is about Leif Andrée and is a story of class, punk, alcohol, theater, violence, politics and love. The show is the hardest and strangesthe had done, he said before the premiere. Now he wants to add:And the funniest.”

– It has been turbulent to say the least as a life journey through my own life and a deal with my past. But also a tribute to the people I love and those I loved that no longer exist, says Leif Andrée.

It is great fun to play this show. The contact with the audience is so important and special to this show. Now it will be a break, but I look forward to coming back!

Leif with script by Leif Andrée and Lucas Svensson, director Ole Anders Tandberg, was first performed November 2 (the premiere was postponed from October 21) and played until Friday February 24th. May 16 there will be a new play period to 10 June. Leif has been praised unanimously by critics.
