WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
At the end of this tale, I'll go to fight a dragon. And I will be no more. Beowulf, all-conquering monster-slayer, rock star, hero, looks back over a life and sees what? Bravery? Violence? Victory? Is there only one way to be a leader? Or is another world possible...? Set to an immersive metal and electro-infused live soundtrack, Chris Thorpe's (Victory Condition at Royal Court) new version of this seminal text is performed by one actor recounting Beowulf's dark, bloody and difficult journey as he prepares for battle one last time.
