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 mate the send-off he wanted. Featuring live music, side-splitting anecdotes and even a real Viking helmet, James Rowland’s Team Viking is a comic ode to death and friendship.
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. Pick of the Festival ***** The Stage
