Icelandic Sagas - The Greatest Hits

An entertaining and enlightening theatrical comedy roller coaster ride throughall 42 of the Icelandic Sagas in 75 minutes, in English!

The Icelandic Sagas are the 42 very true stories of the first settlers of Iceland - Well, Icelanders say they’re true. Everyone else says: Get out of here!

But everyone agrees they are fantastic and vibrant tales of worthy men and feisty women from a thousand years ago, their viking raids abroad and blood-feuds at home.

Passed down the generations and preserved on calf-skin manuscripts the Sagas are the uncontested crown jewels of Icelandic culture.

Step into the world Hallgerda Long-Pants, Gunnlaug Serpent Tongue, Killer-Glum, Harald with the great hair-do, Mjoll the-biggest-of-all-women-who-were-not-giants, Thurid bird-droppings-cheek and Leif the Lucky who found America… and lost it again. 

Never heard of these people? Don’t worry, you’ll get to know them all in Icelandic Sagas - The Greatest Hits!
