SELLING SIMONE 

 A theatre company is about to premiere a new play, written and directed by the determined Sam. Her play called “Simone”, about a philosopher and political activist of steadfast principles, is suddenly hijacked by the charming Walt, who two days before opening night has convinced the cast that the play is going to flop, and he, not Sam, knows how to save it from financial ruin. When the owner of the company agrees with Walt, the pressure is on Sam, who has staked everything into this project, to either stick to her own principles or to sell out and please the punters with a happy ending… SELLING SIMONE is a play within a play, a drama where theatre and life meet in betrayal, trust and the difficulty of doing the right thing. SELLING SIMONE premiered in Stockholm in May 2019.
