Five years ago, James’s best friend Tom was diagnosed with heart cancer and given three months to live. His last wish was to be given a full viking burial. This is the remarkable, hilarious, heart-lifting and outlandish story of how James actually gave his best mate the send-off he wanted.  Featuring live music, side-splitting anecdotes and even an actual viking helmet, James Rowland’s Team Viking is a comic ode to death and friendship.


“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.” ****
