Translated by Karolína Stehlíková
Two plays by a contemporary Norwegian playwright. In the first, The Name (Namnet), a pregnant girl returns home to her parents in the company of a young man, the father of her child. Their relationship is as stiff and lifeless as the relationships in the girl’s family. The characters are incapable of communicating with each other normally or articulating their feelings. This situation is disrupted when the girl’s former boyfriend comes to visit.
In Night Sings Its Songs (Natta syng sine songar), a young, unemployed man spends whole days idle at home and dreams of a career as a writer. His wife suffers next to his passivity, suffocating in the small flat they live in. One evening she goes out with her friend for a drink and when she comes home she puts an end to the silence and apathy and a tragedy occurs.
