The year is 997, and it is the end of the Viking Age; King Olaf Tryggvasson of Norway has been converted to Christianity and now wages a bloody crusade against the remaining Viking Pagans. To this end he has charged Thangbrand, a bar-brawling warrior-priest to witness the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Norsemen of Iceland. Berserkr is a grim and frostbitten meditation on this historical clash of arms, culture and faith.
The play Trojan Men takes a look into the lives of the “men” of the Omicron Omicron Omicron Fraternity as they struggle to rebuild their brotherhood in the wake of an all-too familiar scandal.

Unknown to everyone, another, more serious scandal, approaches, with a shocking confession that will test the brothers to their very core.
