A forbidden love story in a religious village in 50's Västerbotten.

The young teacher Vajlett comes to Granträskåsen to teach the children of the village. Here, most villagers are members of the local Pentecostal church and Vajlett soon realizes that she is not considered godly enough as a teacher.

At the same time, there is gossip about the newly arrived postmistress Ruth. She who with short-cropped hair lives without a husband even though she is over 35 years old.
Ruth and Vajlett get to know each other, and against her will, Vajlett realizes that she is falling in love. The fear of being exposed eats away at the relationship between Vajlett and Ruth, which is becoming increasingly fragile. Homosexuality at this time was not only considered ungodly, shameful and distasteful – it was considered a disease and was a crime until 1944.

The hub of the story is, in addition to the secret love, a depiction of a free religious village at a time when modern Swedish society is beginning to emerge, while strong religious traditions remain. Four female actors bring to life all the village's characters such as school janitor Krok, village elder Adalbert and his wife Agda, magister Forsberg, Astrid in the shop, student Lilly Grahn, mother of five children Hulda Johansson, and of course Vajlett and Ruth.

Vajlett and Rut is dramatized by Ninna Tersman and is based on the first two books in Karin Alfredsson's trilogy. Karin Enberg is directing.

Västerbottensteatern in collaboration with Riksteatern.
