It's 2023 and the Earth is in a grim state. As the permafrost melts at an alarming rate, two literally-frozen-in-time Vikings emerge from the ice; and they're ready for war. Using only their Viking knowledge, some ancient Nordic myths and a sacrificial beer, Eric and Ingrid attempt to solve the world's Climate Change problems one axe swing at a time.

'Vikings vs Climate Change' follows our two rambunctious characters on a journey of song and silliness as they try to figure out exactly what a carbon footprint is anyway. Featuring physical comedy, hilarious antics and original songs and covers, Babble Productions brings a brand new comedy that is sure to tickle your funny bone and inspire you to raise your battle axe.
