    • Abstract:
      During the last few decades there has been an enormous increase in locally based historical plays in Norway. These are mainly staged by amateurs, although professionals may hold important positions both on and behind the stage. The dramas have their origin in actual or invented historical events located in the area, and the scenery is carefully selected to lend an aura of authenticity to the performance: the plays are mostly staged outdoors, and the audience frequently has to make an effort to travel to the site of the performance. As the plays are normally staged annually or biennially, they constitute a regular ritual performance in the community. At the same time, minor changes are made from year to year and may be widely discussed and appraised by the audience, the media, and even people who have never seen the play! Although these dramas claim to represent historical events and period pictures, their underlying message is of current interest. They are mediums whereby the past is seen through the ideological and moral lenses of the present, creating memories for the future. As such, they should also be considered in the context of the wider social dramas surrounding the actual plays. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
