Austin Playhouse will present the Austin premiere of The Norwegians, the new play by award-winning local playwright C. Denby Swanson.

The Norwegians is a delightfully dark comedy about women scorned in Minnesota and the really, really nice gangsters - Norwegian hit men - they hire to whack their ex-boyfriends. Olive, a transplant from Texas, and Betty, a transplant from Kentucky, have been dumped while undergoing a horrendous Minnesota winter. They meet at a bar, recognize each other’s thirst for vengeance, and Betty recommends a pair of Norwegian assassins, Tor and Gus. However, just as the path of love does not run smooth, hilarious twists and complications arise with all involved in this business of revenge.
