Press review

Ruben Moi, Nordlys:

"Ferske Scener's staging of Pinter's drama hits the spectators as an uncomfortable reminder about conduct in the private sphere, cruelties in history and contemporary times and the (lack of) involvement in the public sphere"

Erling Steenstrup, Norwegian Broadcasting (radio):

"Hege Aga Rogstad and Bernt Bjørn do the main work; they are who give the text an understated, well-dressed intensity – adding even a little stroke of humour to the evil. Director Kristin Eriksen Bjørn has been finely tuned into the details. This play will be chewing inside of me for some while."

More about Ashes to Ashes

The way Pinter wrote it, Ashes to Ashes is a simple text asking complex questions: Who is guilty? Who is responsible? Who is indifferent? Who is innocent? Who is the victim? Who refuses to look into the eye of the world?

Supported by Arts Council Norway, The Audio Visual Fund, Nordnorsk Kulturråd and the municipality of Tromsø.
