Timo Närhinsalo presents his acclaimed dramatic monologue, “Viimeinen Päiväkäsky.” (Last Orders)

A Mannerheim-influenced supé (an upscale meal) will be served after the presentation, during which music will be performed.

PROGRAM:

Viimeinen Päiväkäsky
C.G.E. Mannerheim, president – Timo Närhinsalo
Place: St. Michel
Time: The evening of 21.1.1945

C.G.E Mannherheim is sitting in the office of his headquarters. For two days he’s there, drafting an agreement. He models it on the VSB pact between Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Untion, which he’s gotten from Zdanov.

In the meantime he’s in touch with Helsingfors, Paasikivi, Tanner – all headquarter generals. All the while, Colonel Grönvall is within earshot.

The marshal is penning a farewell of sorts to St. Michel, a city that has been his headquarters for three wars. He’s alone, as always. General Airo now leads the war against Germany.

Mannherheim sits isolated in a prison that he himself has created down to the smallest detail. He can see farther – in both the future and the past – than anyone else. Patriotic music plays in the background … perhaps Eroica.

He weighs the past against the future possibilities in an attempt to figure out his next move.

-First premiered in April 2000 in the officer’s club at St. Michel’s.

Fish (pike perch) á la Mannerheim
