Hear! Listen! Hwaet!

As we gather together in the dark to hear a tale of long, long ago, so too did the thegns and folk gather in the King’s hall seeking shelter from the beasts that lurk in the night.

Our hero, Beowulf, travels to King Hrothgar’s land to defeat a monster and save a kingdom, for that is what great heroes do. But Grendel, the creature condemned by God, is grim and vengeful, strong and horrible. Beowulf and a few brave enough to join him, embark on the quest to vanquish the foul fiend. Courage, cunning, and might may win the day and the laurels of battle, but once an adventurer, always an adventurer. Beowulf’s life continues anon with heroic and mighty deeds until a Dragon is awoken and the elder statesman must face a final test of his bravery, alone. This mythic tale, over one thousand years old, cries to be experienced aloud, reminding us of the importance of a good story well told.

Content Warning for This Play: Graphic and explicit descriptions of violence, blood, and gore.
