At the webpage of The Norwegian Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Tante Jane* (Aunt Jane):

"Meet aunt Jane. She's fed up with her life, but she has a plan. A lethal one. The problem is only that there are also others with plans. Meet Frank. He is Jane's nephew, and he is on a quest for cash. He is joined by his buddy Jolle. A sofa behind which to hide. A meeting between two girlfriends. A bottle of cava. A glass runs over. This could not possibly end well? Not every rich uncle lives in America, and not every aunt can swing an axe like aunt Jane.

Morbid comedy

Tante Jane is a recently written play by Tore Renberg. A most energetic, pitch-dark comedy with bananas feminism, alternative fights for justice, and helpless contemporary characters lost in their own dramas."
