At the website of Hordaland Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Heim 2* (Home 2):

"An impressive team of strong, Western Norwegian writers have accepted the challenge to write, together, an image of who we were then. In Heim 2 we are joined by Ruth Lillegraven, Gunnar Staalesen, Tore Renberg as new writers, in addition to familiar writers from Heim 1 such as Marit Eikemo, Frode Grytten and Finn Tokvam.

Morten Svartveit from Voss (known from the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation series Home Ground) takes part as an actor this time. He shares the stage with Kjærsti O. Skjeldal. She is known from different movies and from theatre roles at The Norwegian Theatre. These two are both new faces at Hordaland Theatre. With Hadle Lavold Reisæter, Sigrid Moldestad and Claus Sellevoll, they bring us along to the decade 1975–1985.

What was moving in Hordaland, and in the Hordaland dweller's look at himself and the world surrounding him during this decade? We would like to invite the audience to take part in remembering the events, songs and life during those days. Using a playful theatrical expression, we move around the county and at the centre of the events is the band Voksne Herrers Orkester, with a solid soundtrack bringing us back to this time."
