What will you fight for?
- By Chris Thorpe
- Directed by Justin Audibert
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.
Please note: contains loud music, flashing lights in parts and dry ice.
Listen to a teaser track from the show by composer Danny Saul.
