About Unga Klara

Unga Klara is a children and youth theatre that was founded by Suzanne Osten in 1975. Unga Klara is today an ongoing exploration of the possibilities of theatre, still under the leadership of Suzanne Osten, who is director and artistic director, professor at the Stockholm Dramatic institute, a film-maker and an incisive social commentator.

Unga Klara’s vision and responsibility is to constantly create the unexpected, the challenging and the new within theatre – always with a children and youth perspective. Without hesitation, Unga Klara portrays the reality for a young as well as an adult audience – no matter how difficult the subject.

During the next three years Unga Klara will focus on the theme: Upbringing. In March 2011 the plays Uppfostrarna & De ouppfostringsbara (The Educators & The Uneducatables written by Erik Uddenberg) opened at Unga Klaras stage in Stockholm.
