In A Summer’s Day, written in 1999, Fosse’s truly original voice is revealed through a deceptively simple and poetical text.

A Summer’s Day is set in an isolated old house against the dramatic backdrop of the Norwegian Fjords, taking us back to a pivotal moment in the time of a couple’s life and spins a haunting story told from two different points of view. Drifting from present to past, from memory to reality, Fosse’s rich and poetic language is haunting and truthful playing with themes of love and attachment, light and darkness, and time and space. Reminding us of all the things we’ve lost and all the things we long for. (
