At the webpage of Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) the following, among other things, is written about Jumpy:

"The mother of a teenager, Hilde (Birgitte Victoria Svendsen), herself a middle-aged emancipated woman, is drawn between her own midlife crisis and her daughter's puberty problems. With an ironic outlook at family life and with humour as a weapon, April De Angelis navigates between marital problems, physical decline, setting boundaries and liberal childrearing. How can Hilde trust her daughter to manage in a world when she has her own problems standing upright?"
