Staff Reviews


The old gods, brought to America by waves of immigrants, rally to battle for their lives against the new gods of media and internet, strip mall and TV. Shadow, an ordinary man, is swept into a world where a coin can be the moon, where the boundaries between life and death, real and unreal no longer have meaning, where gods may break their promises but mortals cannot. Great fun, twisty and intelligent.

— Reva

Description


The storm was coming...

For the three years Shadow spent in prison, all he wanted was to get back to the loving arms of his wife and stay out of trouble for the rest of his life. But days before his release, he learns that his wife has been killed in an accident, and his world becomes a colder place.

On the plane ride home to the funeral, Shadow meets a man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday, a self-declared grifter, who offers Shadow a job.Shadow, a man with nothing to lose, accepts. But he soon learns that his role in Wednesday's schemes will be far more dangerous than he could have ever imagined.

American Gods is a dark and kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth and across an America at once eerily familiar and utterly alien. Magnificently told, American Gods is a work of literary magic that will haunt the listener long after it has been heard.

Performed by George Guidall.
