Original text written for the
Danish National Museum with Bent Holm.
From 10 years.
This is the dramatic story of Harald Bluetooth, who didn’t want power, but got it and ultimately used it.
It is the story about the price Harald paid to lead Denmark in difficult times, when no actions were simple or easy, and when words, thoughts and beliefs had dire consequences.
This is a play about the first king of Denmark, who created a country, but paid with his life and love.

“The play is fundamentally great reading and a fine blend of facts and fiction . There are humour and interesting problems especially regarding Harald as regent, but also in the depiction of his family and their clashes”. DBC (09/10).
