Freshly Awoken People Drinking Milk

Freshly awoken people drinking milk - Contemporary Nordic Drama is a new anthology of contemporary nordic drama now available for a multifaceted insight into the beautiful, the all too human and the often bleak and angst-ridden world of Nordic drama in the first decade of this millennium. 

On stages around Europe and even around the world, Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian, and Swedish plays are being staged. This is the opportunity to read five of these in their original languages as well as in English translation.

The anthology contains works by Christian Lollike (Denmark), Kati Kaartinen (Finland), Jón Atli Jónasson (Iceland),  Kari Fredrikke Brænne (Norway), and Jonas Hassen Khemiri (Sweden). All of the playwrights are established and critically acclaimed writers in their native countries and abroad.

The anthology has been published by Nordic Writers Guild and has been edited and produced by DramaDirekt. Buy it online at
