A double bill of new musical theatre. Join us for a brand new scratch work-in-progress and a fully-formed all-singing, all-dancing new production.
THOR & LOKI
House Of Blakewell
Award-winning comedy cabaret act HOUSE OF BLAKEWELL share work-in-progress and never-seen-before material from their new musical: THOR + LOKI. Freely adapted from Norse mythology and featuring a cast of five, this is a story about friendship, destiny and the end of the world. There will be fierce battles, catchy show tunes, tap-dancing and an assortment of woodwind instruments.
The world is ending. Thor has superhuman strength. His father Odin has raised him to fight giants but he’s sensitive and increasingly opposed to violence. One day he meets the orphan Loki, half-god, half-giant. As Loki challenges the status quo, the pair form an unlikely friendship; they become swept up in Odin’s dubious war and begin to see the world in a different light.
