Lettice and Lovage, by Peter Sheffer

”If this is not Prince Charles’s favourite play, it should be.”
1990 Tony Award for Best Play on Broadway
”An evening of enchantment and delight.”

What happens when two rather eccentric, intellectual, middle-aged ladies decide to dress up in the basement, quaff Elizabethan cordial – vodka and lovage no less – and unite to battle the uglification of modern Britain – wielding an axe?!

The third play in a season of sold-out quality English theatre at blackbox theatre Bastionen, opposite Malmö Central Station.

Lettice Douffet, theatrical fantasist, is the most eccentric tour guide ever to lead bored American and Japanese visitors through one of England’s dullest stately homes. So Lettice decides to embellish its history with increasing abandon and straitlaced Lotte fires her for doing so…

Lettice and Lovage is a fast-paced Shaffer comedy. It celebrates English wit, banter, repartee and a love of language, of history and theatricality. Lettice and Lovage by Peter Shaffer is the third play in a season of quality English theatre presented by Playmate Theatre in Malmö, following their performance of Alan Bennett’s iconic British play Talking Heads and the powerful American comedy thriller Venus in Fur, presented in collaboration with Down the Rabbit Hole Theatre Copenhagen. The performances of Lettice and Lovage by Peter Shaffer are in English.

Study material in English about the play is available for groups or classes, booking to watch a performance. ”Lettice and Lovage” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

You can buy more tickets here.

Date: 18-20 January
Time: 19:00-21:00

5 December, 2016 – Helsingborg Business Community / Networking: Meet IKEA IT

We would like to share an event with you, held in Helsingborg! 

Networking: Meet IKEA IT

Meet IKEA IT, one of the reasons Sweden is famous. Helsingborg is home to IKEA’s IT office. Come listen to a presentation by them where they will talk about what it is like to work at IKEA IT and how to apply for their open positions. You will later get a chance to ask questions and mingle with representatives from IKEA IT.

As we will be at IKEA IT’s office there will be a limited amount of space. Therefore only the people who register thourgh our website (in the form below) will be the ones who can attend the event. If you are an international student at Campus Helsingborg, IKEA IT will be more than happy to talk to you, but due to the lack of space they request that you wait until the student designated job fairs later on in spring term (MässING and Agoradagen).

Place: IKEA IT Office, Sjögatan 1, Helsingborg


29 November, 2016 – Helsingborg Business Community / Meet Lund International Citizen Hub and Yrkeshögskolan!

International Citizen Hub Lund on tour! We wil visit Helsingborg Business Community to present the work we do for the international community. Join us at Minpark in Helsingborg!

Yrkeshögskolan offers a unique opportunity for people who recently moved to Sweden to enroll in their education programs. Almost all Swedish higher education systems require high school knowledge of Swedish, English and mathematics, and so does Yrkeshögskolan too, BUT they also accept people who do not fill this criteria completely! If you still do not have a passing grade in, for example ”SAS gymnasie nivå”, you can therefore still apply for their education programs! Come listen to what it is like to study at Yrkeshögskolan, what type of programs get started this spring, and how to apply for the programs! The education is free of charge and you hare able to apply for a loan from CSN to cover your living costs while you study. This is something you simply do not want to miss out on! We have had a similar event with Yrkeshögskolan before this autumn term and that resulted in that 30% of the people who attended our event later enrolled in Yrkeshögskolan’s education program!

We will also be joined by LICH – Lund International Citizen Hub – who are, similarly to us at Helsingborg Business Community, working at integrating new citizens with international backgrounds into the Swedish society. They are based in Lund but are working across all of Skåne. You will be seeing more of them in Helsingborg in the future, so why not get to know them now?

29 November, 16.30 – 17.30
Place: THINK Open Space (Mindpark), Bredgatan 11


15 November, 2016 – Helsingborg Business Community / Seminar: Networking

We would like to share an event with you, held in Helsingborg near the train station! 


Almost 80% of all newly employed people in Sweden admit they got their job through their network. Knowing the right people is therefore a more bulletproof way to get a job in this country than having an impressive cv, long working experience or a good education. But who are these ”right people” and how do you find out just how helpful the people in your network actually are? And if your own network of friends, collegues and family members cannot help you, how do you build up a new network?

These questions and many more will be discussed in our seminar!

November 15, 16.30 – 17.30
Place: THINK Open Space (Mindpark), Bredgatan 11, Helsingborg


12 October, 2016 – English theatre in Malmö: ”Sex and Betrayal: Between the Sheets”

International cross-cultural Danish/German collaboration creates in English a sexy, musical cabaret about love in the 21st century.

Copenhagen’s newest English+ theatre company and Hamburg-based ManusArts have collaborated to bring an exciting blend of German and Scandinavian theatre –  stories and songs about sex, love, and cheating in the 21st century. “Sex and Betrayal” will perform in 12 October in Malmö at 19:00 hrs.

Sex has always been part of collective cultural conscience, with numerous stories and songs written on the subject, from self-help books to “how to get a man/woman” quizzes in the pages of magazines. But what happens when you add betrayal to the mix, and just what does “Women’s Own” have to say about that? We’ll explore the start of love to/and through the start of an affair to find out what happens when you are at the right place at the wrong time. Is it all fun and games until someone gets kicked out of the house for a lip-stick stain on the shirt collar or are a lot of us secretly interested in a little adventure from time to time? Join us, as we examine the ins and outs of intimacy, the plurality of monogamy, and what it really means to let the heart decide.

The play stars Jana Pulkrabek, ManusArts artistic director and actor, as well as the German musical performer Sigmar Tonk. They will be joined on stage by the Danish actor and musician Jens Blegaa, who was also a founding member of DTRH. The play is directed by Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen, DTRH’s artistic director who was also named #1 Trailblazer in English Theatre 2015.

Location and date: MAF, Torpg. 21 in Malmö, Wednesday 12 October, 19:00-21:00.

Price: 150 SEK
MAF member: 120 SEK
Students under 25: 80 SEK
