At the website of Sogn og Fjordane Theatre (SOFT) the following is written about The Ferry Crossing:

"The novel The Ferry Crossing by Edvard Hoem was published for the first time in 1974 and was nominated for Nordic Council's Literature Prize. It is as topical today as when it was released 40 years ago, and is now brought to the stage in a grandioso musical with popular music!

Experience the largest-scale production at Sogn og Fjordane Theatre ever. We follow a writer's thoughts back to a time he has long finished with. To Ramvik, this windy place nobody ever heard of. To a society that has long been ancient. And people who he can barely remember. But of course he remembers them, once he starts thinking about it. He certainly does: Falling in love, the party, the ferry, the kitchen, the bus station café, the live-in studio, the hotel, the rain? The damned rain."
