A fitting and very entertaining trilogy about women and men, produced with great success at Kaleidoskop and Det Kongelige Teater in Copenhagen from 2004 – 2007. The plays KRIG (WAR), UNDSKYLD! (SORRY!) and PIS (PISS) can be performed together or separately.

In UNDSKYLD! (SORRY!), subtitled ”I am able to work even though I am crying”, five women get together. The play frames an intense séance of grievance and confessions from the modern woman’s life. All that floods the heart and the brain is emerged in this part-singing monologue, in which the women take turns at talking, shedding blood, sweat and tears in the process. It is a comedy about all the paradoxes of the modern world, seen from a woman’s point of view; Like a quilt made from rags of overwhelming truths, lies and dreams. This play makes you wonder how everything seems to work out anyway. Premiered at Det Kongelige Teater, Copenhagen. “Excellent entertainment, moving and a precise and fresh portrait of the modern woman’s life.” – Urban. / “Dry beatings are combined with soaking wet dreams in the Turbinehallerne (…) Executed with wit and smarts.” – Politiken / “This is honest, in-your-face, vivid and recognisable. Funny and down-to-earth. Put on stage with a liberating twinkle.” – Berlingske Tidende / “ This is a play by women and about women, but not just for women. This is a recognisable pleasure with lots of good laughs for everyone.” – Jyllands-Posten.
