Quebec author Jennifer Tremblay´s award-winning and internationally successful play the list opens in 14th of September, directed by Irene Aho and performed by Pirjo Määttä. A woman whose perfectionism is reflected in her carefully organised to-do lists, is bereft at the unexpected death of her neighbour. The List is a gently humorous and perceptive study of how the mundane and the meaningful are inextricably linked.

THE SECRET GARDEN is something you should experience, not explain. "First it is the insects that disappear. Then birds run out of things to eat. THE SECRET GARDEN is the depiction of a future we are making for ourselves right now."
