The FELT IF festival (Festival of English Language Theatre in Finland), organised this year for the third time, will bring together three English language theatre companies to Helsinki.
Theatre lovers will have the opportunity to see original material by local writers. A variety of plays by international contemporary writers like Bernard Show and Anton Chekhov are also on offer at the festival.
