Press coverage

Writer and date unknown, Rogalands Avis:

"...a scarily contemporary play picking away the very violence out of the novel Lord of the Flies and letting the 'fly' itself buzz to provoke reflection on the character of violence"

Writer and date unknown, Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation:

"a fast-paced, physical and thought-provoking production about boys and violence."
