Being Norwegian

by David Greig

Sean, just out of prison, invites Lisa back to his flat for a drink. Lisa says she’s Norwegian. Is Sean Norwegian too. In this dark, funny encounter two outsiders reach out to each other across the deep fjords of the heart.

“In Norway we’re used to darkness in people’s heads. We even prefer it. Because if there is no darkness then what in heaven’s name are you thinking about? We Norwegians think people who are happy are perhaps just a little above themselves, don’t you?”

A Paines Plough and Òran Mór production.
