Living standards

Posted by – February 12, 2011

I was mildly amused by a story about the contemporary Finnish play Puhdistus (Purge) being staged in New York. It was being put on for pennies in a small theatre for a fairly brief run. The director remarked that living standards in Finland, and especially Finnish theatre, must be high because a delegation of ten people was flying over and staying in hotels just to attend the first night (of no importance in New York terms).

(I don’t know will anyone not acquainted with Finnish cultural life get the humour here.)
