Press review

Aftenposten:

"… this funny, absurd, unpredictable play which is not about anything at all, but through his (Erik Gedeon's) own minutely detailed direction, filled with small, mega-comical moments, develops unbelievably."

Dagsavisen:

"The play about a bunch of retired actors aged ninety-something, stumbling from the chairs to play rock'n roll every time the nurse has closed the door behind her, is simply incredibly good."

Lillian Bikset, Dagbladet:

"The idea is simple. But there are more levels to Forever Young than one may think beforehand. The border between humour and seriousness is fluent, and the moods change quickly and often."
