MISHAP! (ÓHAPP!), is a psychological thriller, as if produced by The Today Show. Through the blurred lines of morning TV programming, reality TV, and live theater, we see a couple's private life under a microscope. Humor and tragedy collide as we discover what really happened to the relationship. What was the mishap that made their lives worthy of prime time? Where do our private lives end and our public lives begin? Is there still a line?
MISHAP! was a Candidate for the Nordic Drama Award 2008 and premiered at theIcelandic National Theatre in September 2007. In 2004, Jónsson was awarded the Nordic Prize for Radio Drama for The Wheel of Sleep, a production done in collaboration with the band Múm.
