His last wish was to be given a full Viking burial. This is the remarkable story of how James and Sarah actually gave their best mate the send-off he wanted. This work is part of Songs of Friendship, a revelatory storytelling cycle about love, life, friendship, death – and the ridiculous, sublime muddles of everyday existence. Combining story, comedy and song – each accompanied by James’s own music live on stage – these shows have been performed hundreds of times across the world to awards and rave reviews, and now make their Australian premiere in Brisbane.
