Description

Eight years ago, James' best friend Tom was diagnosed with heart cancer and told he had three months to live. Inspired by the 1958 Kirk Douglas movie Vikings, Tom's last wish was to be given a full viking burial. This is the remarkable, hilarious, heart-lifting tale of how James and Sarah went and gave their best mate the send-off he wanted. A cult smash hit when it performed at Edinburgh Fringe 2017, don't miss James Rowland's electrifying debut storytelling show about love, loss and living life to the full. Winner of Vault Festival's Origins Award.
