        • What is it?: This new Icelandic play is based on a beloved Icelandic novel that has awoken much interest around the world and was adapted as a film, that has enjoyed great popularity. The play was an instant success when it premiered at The National Theatre of Iceland in spring 2013, and received Gríman, the Icelandic Theatre Award. The main character, Paul, tells his life story from the cradle to the grave, and the play describes how the shadow of mental illness falls over his life as the innocence of childhood slips away. Although this work describes the bitterness of Paul’s fate, it is also very humorous.
