In the magical and mysterious city of Reykjavík, Iceland, where we are and when we are is often fluid. In Steven Yockey’s haunting dark comedy, an ensemble of actors takes us on a wild, whimsical and sometimes terrifying adventure. Yockey’s characters uniquely explore the human condition, seeking love, connection, and truth.
From director Ann Hearn Tobolowsky: “So many things I love about this play. From the first time I read it, I couldn’t get it out of my head. The crazy humor, the wacky, real, mysterious; foreign – Icelandic, but not Iceland; magical world, that made me laugh, and cry, and broke my heart. I said, ‘I need to see this! And I need to make it able to be seen.’”
