Sjostrom had performed the play in Goteborg that same year. The plawright Johan Sigurjonsson explains that it is built around its two principal characters by writing, "Halla's nature is moulded on a Danish woman's soul.", but oddly he adds something more thematic while dicussing the play by writing, "In my little garret in Copenhagen, I learned by my own experience the agony of lonliness."
