Monica Isakstuen’s piercing and painful investigation of the relationship between man and woman, parent and child, victim and perpetrator has just had its world premiere at Rogaland Theater and the reception has been overwhelming:
“Since her debut around ten years ago, Monica Isakstuen has written both poetry and novels and in 2016 she won the Brage Prize for her novel BE KIND TO THE ANIMALS. Now she has her debut as a playwright at Rogaland Theatre, and an impressive debut it was indeed.” (Amund Grimstad)
“Towards the end of the play there is also a kind of reconciliation between father and daughter. It is muted, deeply moving. Here the text is vibrant, and the characters come closer – whoever they are. It’s simply gorgeous.” (Shakespearetidsskriftet)
“Monica Isakstuen brings taboos to the table in a modern theater language.” (Dag og Tid)
