In this radio theatre for children, we meet little Anna. She struggles with her parents who just argue right before Christmas. She enters a fantasy world where she meets a girl called Inni.

"I would like to generalize a situation like the one Anna is in. Make it clear that it is normal that life is not always at its best. And that children use their imagination to cope with such events. The children are much better at it than we are."
Lene Therese Teigen in Programbladet, December 1995

Anna is played by Ada Hesjevoll who is Lene Therese Teigen's daughter and this is their second artistic collaboration (after the short film Reel). Since then, they have worked together on theater performances where Hesjevoll has been scenographer and/or costume designer.

 

LISTEN TO THE PRODUCTION HERE

 

Review from Programbladet, desember 1995:

– caracter: 5

"Anna's Christmas' takes up the topic of children of divorce in a realistic way. For the very youngest, especially those who are not in such a situation themselves, at least in the first episodes, it can be tough. In any case, it should be listened to with adults, and the series should be followed until it is finished, because towards the end we see a solution to Anna's problems. Overall, this is a successful and listenable production that absolutely deserves a audience"
