Jess Ornsbo's Odysseus from Vraa is set in a modern environment with characters shorn of any heroic and mythical qualities. Set in late seventeenth century Denmark, Sven Holm's Lenora is about Lenora Christina, daughter of a Danish king and devoted wife of a traitor during her last years, coming to terms with her faith and her fate. Morning and Evening, by Astrid Saalbach, follows a group of characters through the course of a day, observing their attempts to communicate with each other in a fragmented world where not even personality is fixed, and actors can take on new roles, which are yet vaguely reminiscent of the old. The final work is Kaj Nissen's radio play, Fair Kirstin, an historical monologue spoken by a country girl who becomes the mistress of the king of Denmark. Additional translators include Julian Garner and Malene S. Madsen.
