Old Nobel Play To Premiere In Stockholm
A previously unknown play written by Alfred Nobel will premiere in Stockholm on the same day this year’s prestigious Nobel awards are distributed.
The play ”Nemesis” printed shortly before Nobel’s death in 1896, is about violence, sex, torture and deceit according to the August Strindberg theatre.
It’ll be performed for the first time on December the tenth, the anniversary of the famous inventor’s death and the same day as most of this year’s Nobel laureates gather for a lavish ceremony in Stockholm’s city hall.
At the time, Nobel’s play was considered so controversial by his relatives that they burned most of the manuscripts, but a few editions were spared.
