Press coverage

Lillian Bikset, Dagbladet, Midtsommermoro (literally: Midsummer merriment), February 16 2014:

"A Midsummer Night's Dream is a fun introduction to Shakespeare, mostly for those who don't know him beforehand. Children and youth constitute the main target group. The complications, disorientation and confusion of new love have become humorous jests in which even the pain of the heart is more a matter of laughter than crying, in this simplified version of Shakespeare's perhaps very most popular comedy. Here, it is popularised further. Deep Nordland Theatre's Midsummer Night's Dream doesn't go, but great fun it is."
