Can the Mountains Love the Sea?

Surprise! I have a new show coming out in May for two dates in London. As yet there are no further bookings confirmed so don’t take a risk and miss it! I love this story. It has viking podiatry hygiene. Loki does something hilarious with a goat. But mostly, it’s a story where the wedding isn’t immediately followed by The End, where we get to see marriage as that grand crucible of person making, and we get to find out if the unlikely couple will grow together or apart.

Skadi Longs for the Mounains – The Poetic Edda

“There is a Giantess at the gate. Her burning fury melts the ice. She will be avenged against us all. Three things she demands as blood price: The most handsome man in our hall as her husband. A joy filled marriage feast. And that her dead father’s cold eyes see her wedding day. She will have these things or she will have her vengeance.”

BASE winner Tim Ralphs invites you to a wedding at your local storytelling club. Ruthless Skadi, daughter of murdered Thiazi, will wed Njord, the peaceful God of the Sea. You might think that this curious union is unlikely to lead to happiness ever after. But it would be rude to say anything and, come bloodshed or bliss, we’ll be watching from ringside seats.

Can the Mountains Love the Sea? is a brand new adaptation of The Marriage of Njord and Skadi, a Norse myth brimful of anger, magic and adult-humour.

RSVP.
