Jeeesper (Gääsper)

Jeeesper (Gääsper) by Åsa Ekberg Kentros in The Open Theatre (Det Åpne Teater) was a visiting performance from Akershus Theatre, directed by Tony Totino.

Jesper is a totally ordinary boy, but he has big ears and his hearing is better than others. In the evening, when dark falls, all kinds of strange and scary stuff begins to happen. The night world of little Jesper consists of the most peculiar things, transformed from mundane stuff of daily life. This creates a problem for Jesper’s increasingly worn-out dad.
