ABOUT THE SOCIETY
Founded in the aftermath of the First World War, the Anglo-Swedish Society was established to foster greater understanding and friendship between Britain and Sweden. The continued strong bond between these two nations has allowed the Society to evolve into a non-proﬁt organisation that promotes intellectual and cultural crossover by organising prestigious events and supporting scholarships of the arts.

Members are offered a unique opportunity to hear from director Max Webster and the cast of Fanny & Alexander in the confines of the rehearsal room, as they share highlights from the development process of bringing this Bergman classic from page to stage.
We are invited from 5.30pm to the Old Vic’s offsite rehearsal space in Bermondsey. The evening commences with an informal drinks reception before joining director and cast at 6pm in the rehearsal room for behind-the-scenes insights into the creative process of bringing Fanny & Alexander to life on stage.
The cast, which includes Penelope Wilton, Michael Pennington, Kevin Doyle and Jonathan Slinger, will be treating us to a few scenes from the play, with informal questions welcomed at the end.
Members of the Anglo-Swedish Society have access to a limited allocation of complimentary tickets to this backstage event – RSVP@angloswedishsociety.org.uk
