Room to Play are in the creative development stage of workshopping the Australian premiere of Someone is Going to Come by Jon Fosse, Europe’s most performed contemporary playwright. We present an international collaboration with the support of Queensland Theatre (Independent support), presenting a unique collaboration with renowned director Valerio Binasco.

Jon Fosse is a contemporary Norwegian playwright and one of the most important playwrights in the Western World. Fosse’s work has been translated into over 40 languages and he is the recipient of many awards including the Ibsen Award and the European prize for Literature.

In his plays, Jon Fosse is capable of transforming daily life into poetry. Capable of capturing the profound substance of the human condition, Fosse’s work is neither tragic nor sad, but resonates with human condition.
