At the website of Trøndelag Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Tordenskjold - Alle tiders trønder* (Tordenskjold - Trønder of all time):

"The game's entirely open when the jigsaw of legendary Tordenskjold is to be pieced together anew. In a pliant range between here and now and there and then, the curtain opens to reveal a madcap battle for power and thrones, rank and position, where love is the greatest and the royals the thirstiest, where fame is all, and nothing is impossible. At the centre of events is Tordenskjold AKA Tordenskiold, Trønder of all time. We follow him from his childhood and youth in cobblestoned alleys, to his years as a seafaring warring spin-doctor in the floodlight of world politics, at the continent. He feels at home there, and he finds himself big shoes to fill. Nobody leaves a historic footprint in his socks. But if one makes a myth of himself, it can soon grow too good to be true. Luckily, that kind of thing can turn into fascinating tall tales."
