A Night's Lodging AKA The Lower Depths

A Night's Lodging (1910) was a theatre production by The National Stage, based on the play by Maxim Gorky.

Ludvig Bergh directed it.

Gorky's play was performed using the Norwegian title Natasylet (archaic spelling, current spelling would be Nattasylet). The same play has also been translated into the Norwegian as Nattherberget and as På bunnen (the Russian title is Na dne). In English, the play is also known as The Lower Depths and At the Bottom.
