A lot or enthusiasm, energy and humor by two actors with a non-stop 75 minutes dialog of the Viking Sagas. Well worth the month. Held a the HARPA, a great venue.

The actors were energetic and adept at entertaining and informing the small audience. The show demystified the sagas (basically - lots of stories about farmers getting in fights). A good excuse to visit Harpa.

These two carried off an impossible, fast-paced, ridiculous, hilarious two-person Saga adventure—I dunno what I was expecting but it was SO MUCH FUN - audience participation, fanstastic yet minimal production values, worth every Krona. GO SEE.
