Helen and Vanna Rosenberg in the double role as housewife Nancy in Lars Rudolfsson’s newly written work, with music by Mats Gustafsson.
Nancy lives a lonely life as housewife in the 1970s United States. She cleans, bakes “Key Lime Pie” and nags on her teens.
Her husband Hugh is a mathematical genius. In his youth, he launched a revolutionary theory that our world is continually divided into new parallel worlds, like a tree where new branches grow continuously and develop in new forms. But the theory was before its time and was met with skepticism and silence. Instead, Hugh makes a career in the armed forces. It’s a time of swingers and belief in the future, barbecue parties and rearmament. But where is Nancy? Suddenly an unexpected guest walks out of the scrub. It´s herself. The parallel worlds meet.
