With more 5-star reviews than you could ever wish for, sold-out shows, and an ‘Acting Excellence’ award, Beowulf: The Blockbuster emerged as the number one show to see at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
And it continues to wow audiences at home and abroad.
Gripping, witty, poignant and vastly entertaining, this triumph of a play reminds us that life is not about how we die, but about how we live.
This one-man stage phenomenon features an utterly compelling and charismatic performance from one of Ireland’s most skilled performers, award-winning actor Bryan Burroughs.
Beowulf: The Blockbuster combines humour, empathy and raw emotion to give genuine goosebumps.
You’ll be talking about it long after you leave the theatre.
