Iceland. Family. Crisis…

Gunnar Oddmunson’s life is in ruins. He is standing alone with a shovel in his hands, wondering how it all went wrong. He was feeling lucky, successful, and had big dreams for the future before the Icelandic economy collapsed, setting a new world record in national bankruptcy. Now he dreams only of justice. When his family abandons him and the bank takes his house and car, Gunnar’s ancient Norse desire for blood revenge awakens. The battle has begun…

Brought to you by the OBIE award winning company Wakka Wakka, SAGA features 30 puppets, ranging from 3 inches to 10 feet, portrayed by an international cast of puppeteers from Iceland, Norway, Ireland and the US. A Co-Production with Nordland Visual Theatre. Co-Presented by Baruch Performing Arts Center.
