Kali and Todd go on a euphoric and destructive trip.
And they haven’t even left their house yet.
Winner of the Wolff Whiting Award, Stockholm invites us in on an evening with Todd and Kali, the perfect self-styled couple. They’re beautiful, have a fabulous sex life and live in a designer home. But under the surface is distrust and desire so potent that even a much-anticipated holiday to Stockholm is threatened. Probing into the psychology of Stockholm Syndrome, Lavery transports us into a lovers’ dance that is at once destructive and euphoric. Stockholm leaves us questioning the fine lines between love and lust, aggressor and victim.
"Lavery’s needle-sharp script toys with the audience like a horror movie… a terrifyingly erotic and haunting 70 minutes.” – Guardian, UK
“Thrilling exploration of form, Stockholm is provocative and unsettling, leaving you with questions buzzing in your head.” – Sunday Telegraph, UK
