In the cold and icy days of long ago, monsters lurked in the dark. People would gather round the light and warmth of the fire to hear tales of the heroes who vanquished them. When Beowulf’s mighty sword destroyed the creature Grendel, a legend was born. A mythic tale that cries to be experienced aloud, this adaptation by renowned actor, Julian Glover (Game of Thrones, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade), reminds us of the power of the ancient and the importance of a good story well told.
