  • A new dramatization of one of Iceland’s Nobel laureate Halldór Laxness’ most popular novels. This epic play about a small nation’s national identity and independence is immensely relevant in our tumultuous times. Iceland’s Bell is set during a humiliating period in Iceland’s history, around the year 1700. The people are suffering poverty and must endure the ruthlessness of the state authorities. The country is consumed by conflict among powerful interest groups. But still people love, hope and dream.
