A fast paced entertaining gem by this bijou theatre company which romped its way through this tale of the Norse gods.

Troels Hagen Findsen, Paul O’Mahony and Leon Scott did not miss a beat as Odin, Loki, Thor, Freya and a host of others came to life in the blink of an eye.

Written by artistic directors O’Mahony and Mike Tweddle the piece worked very well, mainly through the fluid body language and skills of the three players.

Humour was clever, songs were brilliant, particularly the Tree of Life, and you were never quite sure where the characters would pop up, on stage or in among the audience.

Temple Theatre is an award winning international theatre based in Birmingham and has already brought its Unmythable to Bury and played at the Edinburgh Fringe.

I was not sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised at how captivating the piece was with players using just small props to morph from one god to the next.

Asgard would be proud of them.
