DETAILS AND ARTIST INFO:
"The Norwegians" by C. Denby Swanson is a strong, bitter comedy about women
scorned in Minnesota and the really, really nice gangsters--Norwegian hit
men--they hire to whack their ex-boyfriends. Olive is a transplant from
Texas and Betty is a transplant from Kentucky, but neither of them was
prepared for the Norwegian men they would fall in love with in their
adoptive state: the practical, warm, thoughtful, destructive, evil, jilting
kind. If you're a hit man in Minnesota, 83% of your clients want to take out
their ex (Oofda!). Olive has referred Betty to Gus and Tor, a partnership in
the whacking business. What Tor doesn't know is that Gus has been sleeping
with the clients. What Olive doesn't know is that Gus is Betty's ex, and she
has already put out a hit on him with a Swedish firm. Can Betty call off the
job in time to let Gus do his? Should she? The Drilling Company, 236 West
78th Street, presents the play's world premiere March 7 to 24, directed by
Elowyn Castle.
