Needy Little Gods running time ca. 90 minutes written for an ensemble of 15 – or a min. cast 6 women; or 5 women, 1 man

Script available in English or Norwegian

Part kitchen-sink drama, part myth, part murder mystery, Needy Little Gods begins when Someone’s Daughter returns home to collect her grandmother for the Afterworld. Three generations of women try to tease out their individual stories, and struggle to define their relationships. Meanwhile, the goddess Sigyn holds the fate of the worlds in her hands. When she tires of looking after her shape-changing/gender- shifting spouse Loki, all Hell will break loose.
