Good Luck, Cathrine Frost!

(This is a past event and is no longer running)

Det Andre Teatret, Norway presents

Frost makes the audience both laugh and cry” – A-Magasinet

“Funny, important and moving about the beginning of life.” – Christian Mikkelsen

Parenthood is supposed to be an experience of unalloyed joy, but is it? Everything changes. It’s a shock and a complete renewal, both terrifying and wonderful.

Good luck, Cathrine Frost! is a comedy about childbirth, public health and philosophy. Cathrine Frost was a nurse, then an improviser, then she became a mother. This is the story of her experience. Blending humour and honesty, Cathrine breaks down our view of the profound change in the life of the person who becomes the mother and how we relate to the universal, existential act of being born.

“When the baby was born, I died. What you see here is someone trying.”

Good Luck, Cathrine Frost! looks at this difficult and sometimes hilarious event, sharing her personal journey in a dialogue with London audiences for the first time.

“I made this show so that men could also understand what it means to be the part that carries the humans.”

Good Luck, Cathrine Frost! has been nominated for the prestigious Hedda Award as Best Theatre Play, and has played to sold-out houses in Norway since opening in 2022.

“And in addition to all the endings, we also had beginnings.”

In Norwegian with English surtitles.
