Meet the couple every couple wants to be. Attractive and immaculately turned out, they are the perfect team. Tomorrow they will be in Stockholm, a city where, in summer, the sun shines 24/7 and sometimes it’s dark all day long. Today it’s his birthday and she’s going to give him all his presents and treats and surprises.
Treading a fine line between tenderness and cruelty, Stockholm reveals a relationship unravelling. It’s beautiful, but it’s not pretty.

Audience care:

Stockholm is a two cast show that deals with the important themes of physical and sexual abuse within a relationship. A sexual assault scene is stylised and delivered abstractedly within the play. The actors are fully clothed at all times. There are scenes which represent and portray physical violence and include heavy expletive use. This performance is recommended for a mature audience.
