Viking Mama Pitch
When I became a mother, I was expecting the bundles of housework, I was expecting the endless stupid questions I can’t answer, like “Who’s my daddy?” But what I wasn’t expecting was how day after day, it would feel like going into battle; passive aggressive parent groups; kids doing all the things you swore your kids would never do; you doing all the things you swore you wouldn’t do…

Viking Mama is a 6 x 10 minute domestic musical comedy about the battlefield that is the world of trying to be a good mother.
The story takes us through a day in the life of a well-intentioned but hopelessly failing Viking mother, who is living in the ancient world of the Norse warrior, yet still dealing with relatable issues of modern family life.
