A small theatre company in Copenhagen is causing controversy with plans to stage a play based on the writings of Anders Behring Breivik, who carried out the Oslo massacre.

An actor will play Breivik and read from his 1,500-page so-called manifesto. It has drawn complaints from Norway and Denmark.

Per Balch Sorensen, the father of a Danish woman who was shot expressed outraged telling the newspaper Politiken, that it is too soon to do something like this and the play would be a sort of endorsement Breivik’s actions.

But the theatre defended itself by saying that only by discovering Breivik’s thoughts can a repetition of the atrocity be avoided.
