Akvavit Theatre Presents "Hand in Hand" by Sofia Freden
In this madcap black comedy from Sweden, six accidental roommates struggle to find money, love and hardest of all their own apartment in Stockholm. Each works hard to manipulate the system in their own ways, but all of them are willing to go to extreme lengths to find a place (or person) to call home. They look for shelter in the wilderness, the bedroom, and, in their most desperate moments the government. As the characters lives spiral hilariously and disastrously out of control, they discover just how painstakingly high the cost of living really can be.
