Did you enjoy our recent performance of LEVIATHAN by James Wilton Dance?
If so, come along and join us for our next Live & Local event on Thursday 9th May (7:30pm) for Team Viking, by Tangram Theatre Company.
About the performance:
Five years ago, James’s best friend Tom was diagnosed with heart cancer and told he had three months to live. Tom’s last wish was to be given a full viking burial by his two best mates, Sarah and James.
This is the remarkable, hilarious and heart-lifting story of how James and Sarah actually gave their best mate the send-off he wanted… and all the trouble they got into when they did.
What reviewers are saying:
As accomplished storytelling as you could hope to see. To call it a comedy about friendship, mourning and terminal illness – which on one level it is – would in no way convey what a joyous thing it is.’
★★★★★ The Stage
‘Whatever the facts, there’s truth in Team Viking: real grief, still raw; real heart, still healing; and a reminder that life really is for the living… beautifully calibrated.’
★★★★ Fest Magazine
‘Brilliant storytelling… among the most intimate and emotional in this year’s Festival. Beautifully written and superbly performed.
★★★★ Ed Fest Mag
‘Equal parts sad, funny and ridiculous… a show of real courage combined with warmth and lyricism.’
★★★★★ Three Weeks
