    ROBBIE ROTTEN IN LAZYTOWN (Glanni Glæpur í Latabæ)
    The National Theatre in Iceland (1999)

    A play by Magnús Scheving
    Glanni Glæpur í Latabæ



    The characters of Lazytown are household names with Icelandic children, who have got to know them through children books, videotapes and visits to schools and kindergartens by the protagonist, the Sports-Fairy or Sportacus, played by the author himself. "Lazytown" has in fact become an educational concept, emphasizing the importance of physical activity and nutritious food.
    In this play, Sportacus has managed to change the villagers´ negative attitude towards sports, healthy food and all diligence. But when he leaves and the villagers have to manage on their own, they turn out to be very unstable and easily influenced by the criminal Robbie Rotten, who turns up disguised as a very rich man. In fact, he has stolen the presidents car and intends to corrupt the villagers so that he can sell them un wholesome powder-food and become mayor of the town.
