like acting is a chore, but [Norseplay] is acted with pure fun and yes
even joy. See this and laugh..."
"This show provided an entertaining crash course in Norse mythos."
"A smart, cool, creative concept...it's groovy, and I guarantee
it'll get you thinking about theatre in a new way."

of this bunch is everywhere evident."

About the Show
Norseplay is based on the Eddas, a collection of Icelandic poetry that is by turns both profane and profound. Several of the more farcical exploits of Loki, the god of mischief and a fast-talking con man, are here spun into bawdy slapstick entertainment in the giddy and grotesque spirit of the burlesque show.
WARNING: This show contains lethal doses of mature language and immature humor. So kids, don't tell your parents. Parents, don't tell your kids.
