The Legend of Sally Jones

Teater 23 in collaboration with Memory Wax presents Jacob Wegelius’ August Prize-winning adventure story The Legend of Sally Jones.

Here, we follow gorilla Sally on a journey that takes us from the jungles of Africa to bustling Istanbul, across the Aegean and through the bar districts of Singapore and busy streets of New York. She meets everything from power mad scientists and charming magicians to crooks and bandits, but also a loving orangutan and a friendly sailor. Together with Sally, you will experience a breathtaking adventure filled with grief, betrayal and broken hearts as well as loyalty, love and friendship. A cruel and beautiful story – life in a nut shell. It’s an adventurous piece of theater, where all artistic elements together create a performance out of the ordinary. Theater, dance, music, sound, light and audience – in symbiosis the great adventure of Sally Jones is portrayed.
