An adaptation of the novel by Carl Jóhan Jensen
Who killed Bænadikt Konradsen, the butcher of Gásadalur? Who is he really, Matthias J. Daniels? Missionary? A devil? Where does devilry in the end reside?
It is well-known, loved by some, reviled by others. It is out of print, has won its share of prizes. It is never-ending, unforgettable! The book! Did you ever read it? No? Don’t worry. Now it is staged.
The play based on the clever, profound, and devilishly suspenseful novel Ó, søgur um djevulskap (Un- Stories of Devilry)
Demons, horror, blood, spirits, murders, banquets, lust, desire, longings, villainy, inquest. Haunted and dripping with blood, this murder mystery unveils the darkest depths of the human psyche—the soul possessed by the devil, carrying out his dastardly deeds.
We welcome you to an unforgettable evening in the Nordic House, where you will travel through time and space into the shadowy nooks and crannies of this unsolved murder mystery.
The premier is on 7 August 2021 at 19:00.
The play runs until 15 August.
Join us on Friday the thirteenth for a special gothic performance at 22:00 (finishing at 01:13)
