    "Wriggling with creativity…" - Icelandic National Radio - RUV

    "I encourage everyone to see Blue Eye. The play is a cultural news breaker". Teitur Atlason, DV - Newspaper.

        • What is it?: Three siblings dream about publishing Icelandic vampire chick lit, finding the right taxi driver on the private pages and boosting the numbers of the human race for its own sake. They are running late for their father’s funeral when a blue bin from Kópavogur Council appears in the middle of their living room floor. When the blue recycling bin was introduced in the town of Kópavogur a few years ago, a vehement dispute erupted in the newspapers. Someone went so far as to talk about the bloody revolution of the blue bin and fascism in Kópavogur. Blue Eye is a play about people who lose their way in the revolution of the blue bin and want out. Tyrfingur Tyrfingsson is a young, up-and-coming author. He received a nomination for a Gríman Award in 2012 and is the Reykjavik City Theatre’s new playwright-in-residence.
