At the webpage of Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) the folllowing, among other things, is written about Being Young:

"Linn Skåber has interviewed youth, asking about life, spots, peace and longings. About being a bit of a child and a bit of an adult. She has used this material in writing fictional monologues in which she tries to say something about the nice and hopeless time from child to adult, seen from a young perspective."
