ABOUT GEST

 

GEST-Gothenburg English Studio Theatre is an award-winning English speaking theatre located in Gothenburg, Sweden and is the only professional English speaking theatre in western Sweden.

GEST was founded in 2005 by Kristina Brändén Whitaker and Gary Whitaker with the aim of providing quality, contemporary and award-winning theatre in the English language.

GEST works with professional actors and directors from Britain and Sweden and aims to produce theatre of the highest standard, which is accessible to everyone. As well as performing in Sweden at our intimate 65-seater theatre, GEST also performs internationally and is always keen to collaborate with theatres abroad. We also collaborate closely with schools, colleges and universities, offering specially reduced student prices, workshops and after-show discussions with the actors (see our Creative Learning page for more info).

Gothenburg has a large English-speaking population and is the home to a variety of nationalities with English as a second language. GEST also seeks to cater for these people, who may long for an enjoyable night at the theatre.
At present nearly all the great English-speaking plays that are performed in Gothenburg are translated into Swedish. GEST are proud to be able to show the plays in their original language.

GEST is a non-profit organisation, and all proceeds go to keeping GEST running.
