Bengt Ahlfors play My Elevator Days performed successfully at the 2012 Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, as part of the From Start to Finnish project. But now we are bringing it back to Finland with three performances in March at Svenska Teatern in Helsinki. Performed by the nominated best solo performer 2012 at Fringe, Glaswegian actor Alexander West.
“The play’s confrontation with old age and loneliness is piercing, delicately balancing dark truths with light humor. West’s performance is so natural it’s heartbreaking. He gazes into the eyes of the audience so they are completely involved in his world.”
Four stars from Broadway Baby
The tragicomic monologue was first performed by Lasse Pöysti a total of almost 200 times in Finnish and Swedish at Lilla Teatern. It will take you on a journey trough an old mans life and loneliness.
