Bergman play set for debut

A new play written and directed by Ingmar Bergman will open Feb. 4 at the Swedish Film Institute. It’s called “Sista skrilet,” which translates roughly as “The Latest Thing.”

This is the first Bergman play to open since 1949, and the performance at the Film Institute will be for one night only. The play then moves on to the Royal Dramatic Theater and will be turned into a piece for television by SVT Kanal 1 Drama.

The one-act play is based on real-life film biz personalities Gerald af Klercker and Charles Magnusson. Af Klercker was a silent movie director and longtime favorite of Bergman, while Magnusson was the first Swedish film mogul.

There will be one main actor, who will deliver what is virtually a monologue, flanked by several others.
