Gothenburg English Studio Theatre

Gothenburg English Studio Theatre (GEST) is a professional English-speaking theatre in western Sweden, and it currently the only one of its kind in that region.[1][2] The theatre produces contemporary English speaking theatre, mostly with actors and directors from Britain.[3] It is located in Majorna, which is a district in the city of Gothenburg. It is a non-profit theatre. GEST works and performs both in Sweden and internationally.[4] GEST has, in recent years, developed a Creative Learning Department, which collaborates with schools, colleges and universities by leading workshops and after show discussions.[5]


GEST was founded in 2005 by Kristina Brändén Whitaker and Gary Whitaker, both actors and directors from England, and has been located in its own theatre space at Chapmans Torg in Gothenburg since 2012. They also changed their name from Gothenburg English Speaking Theatre during the move to Chapmans Torg. The theatre participated in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2010 and was awarded 'The Fringe Review Award for Outstanding Theatre' for its original production of Kristina Brändén Whitaker's play Expectations.[6][7] Scenkonstgalan 2015 awarded GEST with the prize 'Årets Katharsis' for the production of Constellations.[8]
