The organiser says:
Ever felt you don’t belong? As though you were born into the wrong body, the wrong family, the wrong world?
Heroes Thor and Loki have destinies – destines that just don’t fit. The Gods are counting on Thor to win the war against the Giants, but he hates violence, is useless with a hammer and prefers writing poetry. Hideous half-Giant Loki is destined to destroy the Nine Worlds, but she’s never hurt a fly.
As war rages and The End Of The World approaches, an unlikely friendship is born. Can Thor and Loki find the strength to be themselves and save the world?
Expect epic battles, mighty ballads and a chorus of tap-dancing trolls in this big-hearted comedy about friends, heroes and making a stand. Freely adapted from Norse mythology, THOR AND LOKI is a fierce and fabulous new musical for every misfit who wants to change the world a little bit.
Created with festival favourites HOUSE OF BLAKEWELL (We Can Make You Happy), directed by Eleanor Rhode (Boudica, Shakespeare’s Globe and new musical Teddy) and presented as part of HighTide: Edinburgh.
