We're gearing-up for 2022!!! After running at Mixed Blood Theatre and Phoenix Theater in 2019, we are preparing for a new run of The Viking and The Gazelle! Our website is under re-construction, but please browse around for more information about us and the play!
Our goal is to enhance multi-cultural awareness, understanding, and acceptance through theatrical performance. Come to our next performances of The Viking and The Gazelle, coming in 2022, and no matter your cultural background you'll likely recognize some aspects of yourself on stage. Though we hope you'll feel at times a sense of validation at what you see, we also hope you'll have a sense of internal challenge to view yourself and the world differently. And, we hope you'll be fully entertained in the process! Please browse our site for more about us and the play!
The Viking and The Gazelle is a romantic comedy about the budding courtship of a Twin Cities couple with the role of race thrust upon their relationship. African-American Michelle was born and raised on Chicago’s Southside, while White Robert is from the Minneapolis suburb of Hopkins.
Sparks fly in the hearts of the new couple, yet a happy ending is no foregone conclusion. With a cast of seven characters overall, Michelle and Robert find love’s battlefield surprisingly fraught with the biases of society, including with their trusted confidants; not to mention Robert’s deep dark secret.
In a space and time in the land of “Minnesota Nice” where racial bias is seemingly diminishing, tough and relevant conversations erupt in this wonderful play that, though pointedly frank, does not take itself too seriously.
