    More about The Atlantic

    Knut Nygaard and Eiliv Eide write the following, among other things, in their history book Den Nationale Scene 1931-1976 (literally: The National Stage 1931-1976):

    "It was likely not quite fortunate that the writer himself staged the play. He didn't have the necessary experience or insight to realise his stage ideas and dramaturgical ideas, mostly found in the movies and in English theatre. But he was grateful for the good advice he got from the experienced Christian Sandal. The Atlantic was meant as an attack on and give a picture of the contemporary day's sensation hunger and search for false ideals, and Nordahl Grieg also wanted to use the techniques of the contemporary day, in particular the revolving stage and the imitative lighting and sound effects."
