At the webpage of Rogaland Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Bang:

"About testosterone and powerful positions. About feminism, violence against wives and sexism. About reality TV and Miss Universe. About tolerance, respect and dignity. About religious fanatism, climate change and racism. About biting children in prams and refugees in the basement. About egotism, double standards and megalomania. About contemporary world!

The world is woven firmly together, and it is complicated. Great transformations take place, with digitisation and globalisation. As the electorate, we find strong men attractive. Strong men who promise to fix things their way, if they're only given free reign. And in the strong men's club, they can congratulate one another on their sensational global comeback.
Rolf Pang (Bang) is such a strong man! And nothing - nothing at all - can hinder his way to the top. He possesses an irrational yearning for explosions and sensations in the political world. Because without him, the world is lethally boring.

Bang is theatre on amphetamine. It is a dynamic, fast-paced theatre production and an experience filled with fireworks. It balances the absurdly comical, the deeply thought-provoking and rambling madness.

Get ready to have your ingrained prejudice and stereotypical world-images rocked!"
