Pupils in secondary school functioned as consultants during the process of Girls Girls Girls. Through conversations and questionnaires Grenland Friteater touched subjects such as insecurity, curiosity and the unanswered questions about the opposite sex. This communication was important in writing the script. The objective was daring to speak about touchy subjects engaging youth, without seeming morally righteous.

In Girls Girls Girls by Grenland Friteater the audience met two young men – one of them a civilian worker in a theatre, the other his out-of-work musician friend coming to visit and to ruin the workday. They find themselves on the theatre stage, where the civilian worker is supposed to clean and to put costumes and props in their right places. They’re now spread all over.

The two are more preoccupied with girls than big politics and the uncertain future awaiting them. They long for girls, to understand these fascinating, incomprehensible creatures, and this makes them feel vulnerable. They move around, high and low, from the intimate confessions to what is obviously bragging and to showy song and dance acts. From tender guitar tunes to stand-up comedy and dancing in ball gowns.

Both the young men have a wish to perform onstage, and at one time they put on the costumes spread around to make a parody of the play running every night. It is the play about Prince Paris and the golden apple, for the occasion transformed into Prince Paris and the golden banana (they were unable to find a golden apple).
