"A welcome and gripping visitation - performances captivating." 4 stars Remotegoat
"The setting is perfect - like a pre-global warming glacier. Nothing in Visits is solid, nothing neatly tied together. It's a corrugated Norwegian fog. " Snipe Magazine
"Unsettling sense of the absurd - precisely acted" Time Out
"Deeply affecting. A dark, enigmatic play" Extra Extra

Continuing its commitment to bring neglected European playwrights to the attention of new audiences in Britain, Frogme Theatre Company presents the UK première of Visits by 2010 Ibsen Award winner Jon Fosse in the scrap assemblages of Theatre Delicatessen's unique space.

In 'Visits', a rarely performed piece from 2000, Fosse turns his intensely minimalist gaze upon a fractured family.

The mother, whose husband left some years before, has a new lover. Her teenage daughter slopes around the house in her dressing gown, refusing to go school or find a job and silently hugging a toxic secret; her brother simmers with rage at his mother's suitor, whom he sees first as a ludicrous clown and then as a dangerous interloper. Gradually. under the strain of unspoken tension, the bonds that hold the family together snap, releasing the youngsters from childhood.
