Christopher Nielsen was nominated for The Norwegian Ibsen Award AKA The Ibsen Prize 2013 for Entropy.
The jury gave the following reason:
"In Christopher Nielsen's Entropy we meet three drug addicts and one therapist in a treatment room. The process the four plan to go through cracks when a fourth drug addict is included in the group. In a luscious, surplus-filled and energetic language the playwright pokes fun with the well-meaning therapist society, and creates a number of absurd situations illuminating the chaos/entropy of human life. Nielsen aims to treat large themes in an unpretentious manner, without removing the danger. This way his dramas make their mark as a contribution to public debate and thus they also represent a suggestion for contemporary political theatre anno 2012. That is a rare thing."
