Drama on 3: The Saga of Burnt Njal

Summary

Dr Brynja Thorgeirsdottir introduces Hattie Naylor's adaptation of the Icelandic saga that tells the epic tale of two rival families, a long-running blood feud and its tragic outcome. Five storytellers gather, a troupe made up of renegades, outlaws and outsiders who live on the edges of society and see this as an opportunity to engage and pass judgement on a world that chooses not to see them.
