Being Norwegian

A man brings a woman home to his flat. She says she is Norwegian. He doesn’t believe her.

Lisa: Shh.
This is perfect.
The two of us.
So late at night.
The city asleep at our feet.
Alone together and hungry.

Sean: Would you like something to eat?
I’ve got toast.

Lisa: No – I mean hungry in the Norwegian sense.
‘Hungry’ you know
With a needing in us.

This play was performed, by me, action man and Barbie, at the CDE Conference in Bremen 2005.
