The Bloodbath of Stockholm

500 years ago, in 1520, the Danish forces under the command of King Christian II swept through the gates of Stockholm and took over the city. What followed was the bloodiest day in the city's history, and the events of that day still hold the power to shock us now. 

This one-act hour-long play follows the fates of three characters. King Christian, an enlightened king according to the Danes but a vain man capable of great cruelty. Kristina Gyllenstierna, the widow of the late Swedish general Sten Sture, who took over the leadership of the resistance but who then was forced to deal with the victorious Christian and his appetites. And Gustav Trolle, a bishop until his treacherous contact with the Danes caused him to be unfrocked and condemned to life as a beggar on the streets.
