At the webpage of Trøndelag Theatre the following, among other things, is written about The Littlewoods:

"From an innocent idyll with playing and friendship and only a little arguing it develops into eerie unease. Something terrible has happened in The Littlewoods. Something so terrible Julie has moved to Africa, at least she is disappeared. Still Julie is more present than she was before she disappeared. Nothing is the way it was. And nor will it ever be. Only bits of this time of childhood will be remembered..."

Playwright Jesper Halle won The Hedda Award 2004 in the special artistic achievement category for his text.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"Many different professions contribute, each in their way, to letting the theatre maintain its unique hold of the audience, and many do a particularly excellent effort within other fields than the four or five established Hedda categories. To honour these The Hedda Jury has created the open category called special artistic achievement.

The winner of the year belongs to a group of artist it is impossible to be without, if the theatre is to renew itself and keep developing, and the works of the winner have, during the past season, been an important part of the repertoire of Trøndelag Theatre. The winner is a playwright, and the work for which he gets the award is a dark, disturbing text, convincingly recreating the apparently innocent world of childhood with an original dramatic effect.

Most must have guessed it by now: The award goes to playwright Jesper Halle for The Littlewoods, with its world wide premiere at Trøndelag Theatre."
