    Press review

    Sigurd Bødtker, date unknown, Verdens Gang [Kristiania]: 
    "I have seen a number of talented women play Puck. They should stop, after Mrs. Dybwad has now shown us how Puck is. Simply the way she squeezes the poppy, the merrily evil look, finding that the silly people deserve both one thing and another. With words singing of their own from her lips, with an attitude of pride, because she rules this moment.No, nobody knows Puck the way Mrs. Dybwad does."
