    More about But Tomorrow

    Knut Nygaard and Eiliv Eide write the following, among other things, about But Tomorrow in their history book Den Nationale Scene 1931-1976 (literally: The National Stage 1931-1976):

    "But Tomorrow picks up where Our Power and Our Glory ended, in the 1930es. It is a drama about the arms industry, following its own rules, stripping even the relatively humane business owner of power. It is also a drama about anxiety for the future."


    Knut Nygaard and Eiliv Eide, Den Nationale Scene 1931-1976 (literally: The National Stage 1931-1976), Gyldendal Norsk Forlag 1977
