At the website of The Norwegian Touring Theatre the following, among other things is written about Norsk Reisning* (Norwegian Rising):

"The alarm goes off! Norway is again in war! But can we handle the thought of hiding in the forests without cable TV and caffè latte - and with truly awful internet connections? All hope is gone... or it would be, if it hadn't been for Henrik Wergeland! As a hyperactive tourist guide our bespectacled people's hero return from the other side to explain us - for the last time - what it means to be a real Norwegian. In a desperate attempt to save us he takes us along on a musical journey within our own history, to teach us where we come from and who we really are. But is it too late?"
