by James Rowland

Five years ago, James’s best friend Tom was diagnosed with heart cancer and told he had three months to live. Tom's last wish was to be given a full viking burial by his two best mates, Sarah and James. 


This is the remarkable, hilarious and heart-lifting story of how James and Sarah actually gave their best mate the send-off he wanted... and all the trouble they got into when they did.


Written & performed by James Rowland

Directed by Daniel Goldman


‘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

‘Whatever the facts, there’s truth in Team Viking: real grief, still
raw; real heart, still healing; and a reminder that life really is for the living... beautifully calibrated.’

★★★★ Fest Magazine

‘Brilliant storytelling... among the most intimate and emotional in this year’s Festival. Beautifully written and superbly performed.

★★★★ Ed Fest Mag

‘Equal parts sad, funny and ridiculous... a show of real courage
combined with warmth and lyricism.’

★★★★★ Three Weeks

‘The best theatre I saw was Team Viking by James Rowland, a
superb Ben Moor/Kitson style storytelling show.’
