Edinburgh Fringe show Mythos: Ragnarök will embark on its first ever UK tour in 2023.
Named a “Must See Show” of Edinburgh Fringe 2022, the show earned rave reviews throughout the festival and was nominated for the Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence.
Combining ancient Norse mythology, legends, and folk tales into original pieces of theatre, a cast of actors, who specialise in professional wrestling, create some of the most intense and thrilling fight scenes ever seen in a theatrical setting.
The creator of the show, Ed Gamester said: “I knew professional wrestlers would fully embody the sheer physicality and comedy of the Norse myths, but I’ve been absolutely blown away by the audience reaction. This type of show has never been done before and it seems to have reignited a passion for wrestling that most people haven’t felt since childhood. As a wrestler, that’s a huge honour!”
Mythos: Ragnarök kicks off at the illustrious York Barbican on 17th February 2023 as part of the Jorvik Viking Festival in York and heads to London, Bedford, and Leicester before completing its run at Northampton’s Royal and Derngate on 29th April 2023.
Mythos: Ragnarök is produced by Phil McIntyre Live.
