Garfield, Andreas

Andreas Garfield (né 1976) is a Danish playwright, who achieved prominence with his debut play "Home Sweet Home"; in fact it was a sensation in 2007 when it opened at Teater Grob in Copenhagen, a well-known venue for experimental theatre and new work. Since then, Teater Grob has taken the play on tour around Denmark. In the year of its debut, Andreas Garfield won the prestigious Talent Prize in the Reumert Awards, Denmark's equivalent of the Tony Awards. "Home Sweet Home" was also nominated in the categories of Best Play and Best Leading Actor and won in the category of Best Supporting Actor. This recognition was exceptional since the playwright was a student at the time. He graduated from the playwrighting division of Aarhus Theatre, Denmark, later that year and his plays have since been produced in theatres all over the world. Even though Andreas Garfield’s plays are varied in style and genre, he is especially known for his psychological dramas, which, through a hyper naturalistic dialogue between quite ordinary people, uncover taboos such as the Iraq war, child death or economic fraud.
