Their drama is about broken relationships, so the actors thought that private flats would provide just the right kind of intimacy they were after. Hallberg sits on the couch for most of the performance, while Tryggvadottir sits at the table. The audience nestle in among the two actors, "wherever they can fit in".
During pauses in the performace, the actors exploit the normal apartment noises, like the shower or the coffee maker or the radio, as their sound effects.
Hallberg is adamant that the concept is no gimmick. In fact, the idea to turn ordinary apartments into theatrical spaces came long after the play's concept originated.
The play's producer posted signs all over town that read, "Do you want a relationship drama in your living room?" The theater group offered to pay 150 dollars in compensation, and there were more responses than they knew what to do with.
Hallberg and Tryggvadottir picked a handful of them to use and urged the owners to keep the spaces unaltered.
Tryggvadottir says the responses to the play are varied, but that it brings some to tears. One person even said she wanted to go home and break up with her partner after seeing it.
