premiere 10 Mar 2024


In her debut novel The Laws, Connie Palmen tells the story of a woman in search of herself. Seven encounters with seven men over seven years. We see how she grows into being a writer and gives meaning to her life thanks to and despite these encounters. Within the year of publication, this book sold over 400,000 copies. Thirty years later, it has become a modern classic. Eline Arbo makes a contemporary adaptation in which the characters are detached from gender and origin.


ELINE ARBO ABOUT THE LAWS

'When I first read The Laws, it was like reading about my own life: the search for your own voice, your artistry and who you are in relation to others. It is an unforgettable exploration of being human, in the perfect balance between universal and personal. I am honoured to bring this absolute masterpiece by Connie Palmen to the stage.'


CONNIE PALMEN ABOUT THE LAWS

'I am a great admirer of Eline Arbo's transformative and personal work. She has shown me, with every performance of a novel, novel character, or writer, something I had not understood about the book or seen in that writer myself. So I am handing over my novel The Laws and myself to her imagination in complete confidence, and I am extremely curious to see what she shows me.'
