Iceland’s National Theatre, Thjodleikhusid, first opened its doors in Reykjavik during the early 1950s. The building was designed by Guðjón Samúelsson and today operates as three separate venues – the Main Stage, the Black Box and the Workshop Stage. With ten to fourteen plays on the go every season, Thjodleikhusid provides a great showcase for performance of both Icelandic and foreign classics, as well as new works, both foreign and domestic.
The National Theatre of Iceland plays an active role in the developing culture of Reykjavik – providing a forum to help develop youth appreciation of the theatre, offering a showcase for professional productions, and creating an interest in the dramatic arts among locals and visitors alike. Annual attendance at performances can top 100,000, and the seasonal programme of shows includes a wide selection, sure to offer something to interest everyone. The National Theatre is easily accessible by public transport.
