This heartwarming play about a contemporary American family delighted audiences at the Manhattan Theatre Club. The Vikings are not Norsemen of old, but an American family of Danish descent who pride themselves on their strength of character. They include Grandfather Yens Larsen, who founded the family carpentry business, his son Peter, and Peter’s son Gunnar. After Peter’s wife dies, Peter looses interest in life. His father and his son do everything they can to help him, including trying to make a match between Peter and an old school friend of his, Betsy Simmons, who is now divorced and lonely, too
