New-Norwegian original text

The action takes place at the doctor’s where 4 different women are waiting to speak to the doctor (who herself is ill): Margrethe (89), who struggles with a failing memory; Heidi (42), who has filled herself with botox; Ingeborg (39) who wants a child; and Randi Beate (50), who needs some sleeping pills. Suddenly, the situation twists and the scenario is seen from the doctor’s office and point of view. A play about unorthodox healing, love, children, choices in life and the worthy life. A work that is both absurd, funny and uses magic realism.
