    About Sleep My Baby Sleep

    Sleep My Baby Sleep is a play by Jon Fosse, written in 1999. The original title in Norwegian is Sov du vesle barnet mitt, and the first Norwegian-language book edition of the play was published in 2001, as it was part of the collection Teaterstykke 2 (literally: Theatrical Plays 2).

    Sleep My Baby Sleep had its world premiere at Théâtre de Folle Pensée, France in 2000.

    The French translation - called Dors mon petit enfant and made by Terje Sinding - was published before the Norwegian original text (in the book Trois pièces, by the publisher L'Arche), in 2000.

    The play is written for three actors, gender not specified.
