Team Viking

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

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

Combining storytelling, comedy and live music, Team Viking won the Vaults Festival Origins Award and was a runaway hit at the 2016 Edinburgh 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.’ - ★★★★★ The Stage

‘Brilliant storytelling... among the most intimate and emotional in this year’s Festival. Beautifully written and superbly performed.' - ★★★★ Ed Fest Mag
