    1. Enjoyed a lot of scenes from the play (though feel like I missed some of the intentions here and there). What I enjoyed most though is seeing the printed work and learning about the unexpected journey of this play.It's funny that Sheila Heti named one of the families after the Icelandic publishing house (Oddi) that McSweeney's used in their early days. Heti wrote the play in 2001. It is only fitting that 14 years later McSweeney's is the production house for this volume.
