FT Alphaville had a great little post yesterday about the Reykjavik City Theatre’s upcoming performance of that famous Norse epic Report into the Collapse of the Icelandic Banking System. (Not a joke. Some theatre types are going to stand up and read the thing cover to cover, all twelve hundred pages of it. No, I don’t know why either.)
They undersold it a bit, though. This is a big, massive, groundbreaking artistic event, and it deserves something more like this:
Funnier than All Quiet On The Western Front!
More thrilling than The Very Hungry Caterpillar!
Shorter than The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire!
You’ll pay for the whole seat – BUT YOU’LL ONLY NEED THE EDGE!
The Reykjavik City Theatre presents the biggest smash hit of 2010: a dramatic reading of the report into the failure of the Icelandic banking system!
It’s one hundred and twenty hours of a non-stop nail-biting thrillride that’ll have you glued to your seat!
The action starts at 11am sharp, tickets are free – BE THERE!
Don’t tell me you wouldn’t queue up to see that.
(Related and slightly worrying: “ownership links between companies with over ISK 500 million of assets; minimum 10% ownership“. Uh, wow. [Ed note: 500mio ISK was about 7 million USD, before everything went pear-shaped and the Icelandic krona suddenly wasn’t exchangeable for anything except herring.])
