About Odd and the Frost Giants

Bestselling author Neil Gaiman’s thrilling, snow-filled adventure

It's going to take a very special kind of boy to defeat the most dangerous of all the Frost Giants and rescue the mighty Gods. Someone cheerful and infuriating and clever. Someone just like Odd...

This Christmas, follow unlikely hero Odd on an epic journey as he meets Norse Gods Odin, Loki and Thor, stuck in animal form in the human world. They are in trouble so Odd must use all his cunning to save them, and stop the invading Frost Giants from plunging the world into endless winter…

Combining Gaiman’s (The Ocean at the End of the Lane, Coraline) signature mix of magic and humour, this spectacular festive tale is about finding friends in unlikely places, and the courage you never knew you had. A World Premiere stage adaptation by Robert Alan Evans and directed by the Unicorn’s new Artistic Director Rachel Bagshaw.
