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.
Berserkr is a nine-character play which can be performed by as few as seven (male) actors with no intermission and a runtime of 90 minutes.
