Thorstein the Staff-Struck, a Penny Seats One-Night-Only Special Event
Join The Penny Seats for an evening of broadswords and beer, as we present local playwright Russ Schwartz's retelling of a millennium-old story from the Icelandic Sagas. The company will perform the play as an active staged reading, the third since its debut in Performance Network's 2009 Fireside Festival of New Works.

The evening will include dinner provided by Arbor Brewing Company as well as a talkback following the performance (though it is also possible to skip dinner and go straight for the reading and talkback).

What's in a name? More to the point, what's in a name like Thorstein the Staff-Struck? And why is it going to get a lot of people killed?

In the year 1050, a young man leaves a drunken brawl with a nasty cut and a nastier nickname. While the former heals, the latter spreads, and before long, his blind, cantankerous Viking father has cajoled him into avenging the insult. Thorstein's next move places him in direct conflict with local boss Bjarni, who would like to give the kid a break, but -- as he is constantly reminded by his sharp-tongued wife Rannveig -- is not in a position to back down. Murder, treachery, song, low cunning and strange cooking habits are all part of the journey to a tricky negotiation at swordpoint.
