The theater opened in 1916 with A Dream Play by renowned Swedish dramatist August Strindberg. It was the most modern theater in the country, with Sweden's first rotating stage and a lighting system that was so innovative for its time that the audience likened it to a revolution in light. In 1934, Lorensberg started showing films instead. The theater company moved to Stadsteatern, where they stayed until 1987 when Lorensberg again became a playhouse. It was the comedy shows Galenskaparnaand After Shave that reconsecrated this as a theatrical venue, and since then there's been a steady stream of plays, shows and musicals here.
