One day, however, his world crumbles to the ground, when he discovers that he's caught The Fog, the menacing plague which threatens the lives of the inhabitants in Hreinavík. Now the race is on the find a cure before it is too late and Núnó becomes the next victim of The Fog. He receives help from an unexpected source and during this journey he gets to know himself and the world in a completely new way.
Núnó and Júnía is a new Icelandic play for children and teenagers, written by Sigrún Huld Skúladóttir og Sara Martí Guðmundsdóttir. They also wrote the stageplay Píla Pína, which was a major hit last year. Sara Martí also directed that play and has now gathered most of the artistic team that created the magical world of Píla Pína in The Akureyri Culture Society's staging in Hamraborg. Núnó and Júnía will be quite a spectacle, full of theatre magic and visual tricks. The renowned musician Íkorni (The Squirrel) writes the music for the play. Núnó og Júnía is one of a number of events in The Akureyri Culture Society's ambitious program that are intended for younger audiences.
