Beowulf

A Unicorn Production

What will you fight for?

  • By Chris Thorpe
  • Directed by Bijan Sheibani

At the end of this tale, I’ll go to fight a dragon.
And I will be no more.

Beowulf is the oldest surviving poem in the English language. Writer Chris Thorpe (Victory Condition, Confirmation at Royal Court) and director Bijan Shebani (former Associate Director, National Theatre) shine a new perspective on the seminal text, drawing out connections between the ancient and the modern worlds in this tale of heroism, fear, bravery and anguish in the battle of life.

An exciting, adventurous and atmospheric new interpretation performed with live music.
