    Romance-Minded Troll Borrows Cupid’s Bow

    Ken Jaworowski

    April 10, 2012: There’s a chuckle every 10 or so minutes in the romantic comedy “Out of Iceland,” at Walkerspace. You’ll know that because you’ll check your watch often, wondering how much longer the play, with barely 20 minutes worth of plot, will try to stretch its running time. (Answer: an hour and a half.)

    NY Review: 'Out of Iceland'

    Mark Peikert

    April 3, 2012: Director Josh Hecht has neatly split Drew Larimore’s play “Out of Iceland” into two distinct—and stylistically opposed—halves. The more engaging half is a tender romance between an Icelandic cowboy and a visiting historian, who meet on the edge of a volcano in Askja, Iceland. The second half involves Lea DeLaria as a magical “hidden person” named Thor, who sings “Bali Hai” in Icelandic.

    Out of Iceland

    Chris Kompanek

    April 2, 2012: Drew Larimore's Out of Iceland, now at Walkerspace under Josh Hecht's direction, opens promisingly with an animated Lea DeLaria dragging the set downstage amidst screens shaped as glacial pieces of ice. Miniature houses hang above to suggest the small town of Askja in the central highlands of Iceland where the play is set.

    Out of Iceland

    Aimee Todoroff

    March 29, 2012: In the comedy-folklore mash-up Out of Iceland, presented at walkerspace by Alfred R. Kahn in association with Culture Project, Caroline, an American writer with a painful secret, is compelled by the story of two lost explorers to visit Askja, Iceland. At the top of the show, she has literally fallen into a volcano and has been rescued by a cowboy named Hal. Caroline is running from her past, Hal is hiding from his, but the spirit of Iceland has plans for this pair, and sends Thor, a magical, mischievous troll-type being referred to in the play as one of the “hidden people,” to make sure that they comply.
