Naked farmers head for town
I reported a while back about a group of farmers in northern Iceland which set up an Icelandic version of the Full Monty. Now after 40 performances in Hörgárdalur valley, the gang is headed for fame and riches in Reykjavík, the big city.
The performance revolves around a fight between the farmers and a bank, essentially portraying the reality of their lives. The characters in the play decide to pay off their debt by stripping, perhaps not all to different from the actors themselves.
Even though there isn’t much left of 2011, they’ll be bringing with them what’s left of their nude calender if anybody is interested.
