  The Danish Play at The Den Theatre

The Danish Play

The Den Theatre
1329-1333 N. Milwaukee Chicago

At turns hauntingly memorable and subversively humorous, The Danish Play tells the true tale of Agnete Ottosen, a Danish poet and member of the Resistance during World War II. She was captured, tortured, and imprisoned at the notorious Ravensbruck concentration camp. Basing the play on Ottosen’s poetry and journals discovered after her death, playwright Sonny Mills (Ottosen is their great aunt) shows the depths to which she went to ensure the safety of herself, her fellow citizens, and her country. The Danish Play reflects a dark time in Danish history, yet one that never loses sight of the hope, light, and laughter of a better tomorrow. Presented at The Den Theatre. Written by Sonny Mills and directed by Kirstin Franklin.
