The mother of all monster-tales comes to life in this remarkable solo performance. The tale of a man who kills monsters, becomes king and ultimately dies in battle with a dragon, Beowulf is one of the oldest surviving examples of English poetry. Nationally-acclaimed solo artist Charlie Bethel reanimates this usually dusty English lit staple and restores it to a rollicking, bloody and brash morality poem, in which the story’s themes — the impermanence of life, the uncertainty of mortality and the courage to engage in the simple act of living — are as immediate and pertinent as they are timeless and classic. (mature language and themes)
