"I'm not losing my mind, I can't, not again. I'll go mad."
What's the point of ever going out when you can get pizza delivered, and all the sex you want on the phone? And who needs a bed to sleep in when there's a perfectly good wardrobe to stand the night in?
First there were Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon; now meet Elling and Kjell Bjarne, the Odd Couple of the dysfunctional world. Given a flat in the centre of Oslo by social services, their mission is to re-assimilate themselves back into society. It's that or return to the asylum. All they have to do is convince their social worker, Frank, that they really are "normal"...
Based on a novel by Ingvar Ambjørnsen, stage adaptation by Axel Hellstenius in collaboration with Petter Næss, adapted by Simon Bent. Paul Miller directs. Featuring Adrian Bower and John Simm.
