Beowulf at the Everyman Studio Theatre

Saturday 10 February 2018

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 it seems that only Sophie is brave enough to save her.



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 thrilled to 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!
