In a press release from The National Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Gratulerer* (Congratulations):

"In Gratulerer, comedian Else Kåss Furuseth explores if it is possible to be good enough just the way you are, even though you are kind of lousy. The monologue, again directed by Arvid Ones, is the sequel to Kondolerer* (My Condolences), a comedy about suicide, a tribute to life after having lost one's mother and brother in suicide."
