About

The Warmblooded - U.S. PREMIERE
Written and directed by Sirkku Peltola

"The Christmas tableau performed under the bridge must be the most spectacular theater scene I have ever seen."
--Demari News (Finland)
 
From Tampere Workers' Theatre, one of the largest theaters in Tampere, Finland's performing arts capital, comes The Warmblooded, the third and final stand-alone production from an award-winning trilogy that chronicles the thinning fortunes of the Kotala family. Once the proud owners of a small farm, the Kotalas are now destitute, living beneath the overpass of a forgotten highway alongside a motley crew of drunks, Iraqi refugees, and Romanian gypsies. When the camp dwellers begin rehearsing a Christmas pageant for their charitable neighbors, they discover that their dismal lives under a cold, wintry sky can also be filled with small miracles. Written and directed by one of Finland's most frequently performed playwrights, The Warmblooded is a comedic, warm-hearted look at Finnish life. 

In Finnish with English supertitles.
