  • What is it?
  • A housewife in downtown Reykjavik seems in no way
  • different from other housewives. She takes care of her children,
  • her husband and a Cameroon exchange student in a impeccable manner.
  • Soon, however, it is revealed that the housewife is not at all as she seems.
  • Adventurous or rather questionable secrets of the mistress comes to the
  • surface and builds up to almost insoluble complexities.
  •  
  • Here Vesturport takes on the comedy-form where the doors open
  • and close at the correct moment, the characters appear at uncomfortable
  • times or leave the stage right before everything becomes intolerably embarrassing.
  • Actors changes characters in a remarkably short time, one playing
  • with word games while another falls on a banana peal.
  • All the tricks in the book and a lot of unexpected occurrences in the manor of Vesturport.
  • A dangerous and colorful performance.
