Their last show was Unmythable.. Their new shoe is totally…. Norsesome..

Randy gods, psychotic giants and murderous elves face off in the show to end all shows -
with the end of the world guaranteed.

mythology is packed into this unforgettable hour. Mixing comedy, music, electric drama and
an unhealthy amount of cross-dressing, it’s going to be Valhalla-va show.
Not suitable for children under 12 or the faint-hearted!

‘Hypnotically entertaining… The energy and spirit of Monty Python, blended with a
less deadpan version of Flight of the Conchords.’ – David Larsen, The New Zealand
Broadway Baby ‘flawless’
Three Weeks ‘utterly entertaining’
The Public Reviews ‘superb physical theatre’
Fringe Review ‘a masterclass in holding an audience spellbound’
