“Against all trends, Mirror Stage continues to believe in the theater’s power
to teach and to change and to discuss. And I am glad they do…

Odin’s Horse tells the story of Arman, a newly successful writer of Icelandic heritage. Seeking fresh inspiration, he obtains the cell phone number of a tree-sitter whose commitment to the forest thrusts him into the struggle between those who make their living cutting timber and those who risk their lives to save the oldest trees.

Post-play discussions and Community Forums

Following Sunday matinees, Mirror Stage presented post-play discussions and Community Forums that further explored the play’s themes of storytelling, Nordic mythology and the challenges of sustainable forestry. Community Forums were free and open to the general public.
