At the webpage of The Norwegian Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Angerhøy:

"At the innermost point of a fjord is Angerhøy, a small, no longer blossoming industrial town in which people live their lives, squeezed in between past and future while the stone hanging above the fjord threatens to fall.

For the sake of the people of Angerhøy, for the young couple Ulf and Rosita, for us, for anxiety and desire, for the pain we feel in what happens, our clinging to what we have and longing for all we think we should get - Marit Tusvik has written this play and dressed it in light and darkness, crying and laughter. A play about how we invent our live with death always present."
