Thomas und Tryggve
Thomas and Tryggve are two friends who, at first glance, could not be more different: Tryggve knows everything there is to know about space, and he gets teased about the tights he gets from his overly protective mother; Thomas, on the other hand, wins a trophy for being the fastest and strongest boy in his entire school, yet his dad isn’t interested in him, and he is often home alone in the evenings. Together, Thomas and Tryggve experience the excitement of the first day of school and first love, as well as those days when they’d rather skip school and their friendship is put to the test.
A play about true friendship, bullying, courage, and what it means to be a hero. Author and director Tove Appelgren speaks Swedish, lives in Finland, is a mother of seven, and tries to find kind solutions to unsolvable family disputes in her children’s books and plays. Thomas and Tryggve is a production taken over from the Residenztheater Munich.
