Team Viking: James Rowland

Date:Sat 20 Jan
Time:8pm
Venue:J3
Price:£10

Five years ago, James’s best friend Tom was diagnosed with heart cancer and given three months to live. His last wish was to be given a full viking burial.

This is the remarkable, hilarious, heart-lifting and outlandish story of how James actually gave his best mate the send-off he wanted.

Originally developed at the Vaults Festival where it won the Origins Award, Team Viking was one of the runaway hits of the 2016 Edinburgh Festival, combining storytelling, music and comedy-theatre to rave reviews.

★★★★★ PICK OF THE FESTIVAL
‘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.’

Featuring live music, side-splitting anecdotes and even an actual viking helmet, James Rowland’s Team Viking – a comic ode to death and friendship – now embarks on UK tour with Tangram Theatre. The company has nearly a decade’s experience producing rural tours across the UK.
