What happened to Norway on the way from the Reformation in 1537 till the constitution took form in 1814 ? What happened in those darkened centuries ? Or were these years simply not dark, but full of light and hope for the future? You do not know? Do not worry. Once again Statsteatret comes to your rescue .
Welcome to a time when patriotism and national pride had not yet been invented. Welcome to a journey in religion, wealth, language, sex and slavery. We meet a mysterious Danish theater troupe on its way between the Norwegian fjords to save the frozen souls of Catholic destruction. Luther is the new wine. A young Norwegian man joins the bandwagon, and thus on a journey he will never forget.
Welcome to our quirky , dangerous but “oh so wonderful lovestory!”

Statsteatret delivers something one could almost call a new form of theater. Where the bar is high, it really makes you laugh and the actors are so relaxed that it’s almost like you run up on stage and sit with them.- iTromsø
