Julia doesn’t know who she is at work, and seemingly neither does her boss-lady Eva or the company’s new event manager Rikard. In fact, perhaps they all just assume their roles as instructed by a creepy Rammstein-obsessed success guru?

A girl, a boy, an ex. Shamefully conventional dreams in a too conventional world, and the dilemma of wanting the pretty dress as well as the mighty sword. And a very big cheese.

Therese is always keen to challenge herself through new forms of expression. During the 2020 lockdown period she wrote her first short film and was invited by Bruised Sky to write a short monologue (performed by Madeleine MacMahon, video below). She is currently working on a series idea. Other current projects include working with Sven-Bertil Taube (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) to create a new Swedish translation of Alessandro Barricco’s 1994 play Novecento and past commissions have included advert scripts for Universal Sweden.
