Press coverage

Writer and date unknown, 1990, Arbeiderbladet [Oslo]:
"It is, in many ways, a story of the human being as its own worst enemy, and it is marked by Martinson's thoughts of universal disasters. Yet, Lise Eger has created a production characterised by meaningful, aggressive and involving poetry. Because of this, Lise Eger and the performers deserve praise for this strong effort of a theatre production."
