The 60th performance of the popular children's play Glanni glæpur í Latabæ is today, which took place in front of a packed house at the National Theater since last theater year.

The play Glanni glæpur í Latabæ, which is shown at the National Theater, has enjoyed great popularity among children of all ages this winter. It has now come to the point that this play, and recently Áfram Latibær, became the most popular Icelandic children’s play shown in Iceland. All shows have been played to packed houses.
On Sunday 29 October, the 25th guest visited the Sports elf and his teammates and they received gifts at the end of the show for that occasion. Two of Latibær’s residents, Solla Stirði and Nenni níski, handed over tickets of their choice for a show at the National Theater, flowers, a CD with songs from the play and sports candy to Ásgeir Steinarsson and Steinunn Árnadóttir and their two daughters, Birna and Björk. Receiving the gifts went a bit awkward because Nenni didn’t want to give away the gifts. In the end, however, he gave up and everyone went their own way in the true spirit of Latibær.
Finally, it should be noted that all good adventures come to an end at some point. Performances of the Glanni glæpur í Latabæ play will now be less and soon will it will be the last show in the theater – at least for the time being.
