At the webpage of Teatret Vårt (Our Theatre) the following, among other things, is written about Perplex:

"Hilde Marie and Daniel return home after a vacation. It turns out that Valborg and Eldar - who were really just to be housesitting - all of a sudden act as if they own the house. The house has been redecorated, there is no electricity, and a mysterious package has arrived by mail. Hilde Marie and Daniel try to take revenge through returning as an au pair and the son of the 'new homeowners', but haven't calculated with the opportunity that two bizarre Nazis would show up to change the rules for this grotesque comedy.

The distance is short to a failed costume party for The Elk, the ski jumper, the volcano and the sexy Viking girl. And how should one handle it when the expectation of partner exchange hangs in the air, but nobody really feels like it? The theatre game leads the four actors further and further out on a philosophical slope, and to the sudden suspicion: What if there is no director? What if the director is dead?"
