The Guest - a play about Hans Christian Andersen's famous visit to Charles Dickens.
The performance explores the relation between Hans Christian Andersen and Charles Dickens who nurtured mutual respect since they both focused on the vulnerability of children in an uncaring world. However, they were both very different in character.
The performance will alternate between realistic places where Andersen visits Dickens and timeless epic passages where the writers meet in their literature and correspondence.
Actor Henning Jensen will star in the role as Charles Dickens.
The performance will tour a number of small venues nationwide and in Copenhagen and Aarhus. The play will be translated into English for international performances.
