Announcing their show, the Danish Royal Theatre stated that Amy will show the: "enormous pressure a sensationalist public put on a young superstar when her problems began." The play was written by a consortium of 11 people naming themselves "Det roede rum" with a script drawn together from concerts, interviews Winehouse gave as well as newspaper clippings and TV appearances.
