Love throughout the seasons of life in a contemporary drama by Frode Grytten.
Frode Grytten is one of Norway’s most beloved authors, and with this play he has created a beautiful homage to life-long love.
Albert and Anna, two senior citizens, have loved each other – and their garden – most of their lives. But Anna is disappearing, and when she is gone, Albert is afraid of losing himself too. In the performance, they encounter their younger selves. Humorous and warm flashbacks portray a life together through the changing seasons. Albert & Anna is the story of an ordinary love, the kind that isn’t seen by anyone but those who share it.
