BEOWULF

Sat 3 & Sat 10 Feb 10.00am

BEOWULF

Written and directed by Toby Hulse.

Inspired by the Anglo-Saxon epic.

Beowulf - the bravest of the Anglo-Saxon heroes, fighting flesh eating monsters and fire breathing dragons, over an inhospitable landscape, in the defence of Hrothgar, King of the Danes.

Nine year old Sophie knows the story of Beowulf well. She has enjoyed sharing it many times with her mother, a professor of Old English. Together they have even learned to read a language that no one has spoken in this country for over nine hundred years.

But Sophie is fighting monsters of her own, monsters every bit as terrifying as those that Beowulf must face. Her mother is dying, and Sophie’s life is changing beyond her control.

A new play retelling the story of the greatest Anglo-Saxon poem ever written, and exploring how we respond to death; performed in Bristol Old Vic Theatre School's trademark mix of gripping storytelling, bold physical action, and live music, with a sprinkling of the original Old English! Anyone who was thrilled by last year's Jason and the Argonauts will need no persuasion to join Beowulf and Sophie in this epic battle to the death.

Suitable for anyone over seven with a taste for adventure!
