The Story of
Beowulf - written and performed by Erik Beaton
Denmark, 1,500 years ago. The creature Grendel has
been raiding the hall of the Danes for 12 years, slaughtering and devouring
king Hrothgar’s warriors. Across the sea, Beowulf hears of this curse and sets
off to kill the monster, with his bare hands!
In this modern telling of the ancient legend, Erik Beaton
brings to life the strange Norse world of murderous monsters, rampaging
dragons, ferocious yellow-haired warriors, kings, queens and mead-halls.
Contains violence and horror, plus some strong language.
