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.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie?
