BEOWULF: THE BLOCKBUSTER
Written and performed by Bryan Burroughs
Develop and directed by David Horan
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 this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world’s largest arts festival.
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.
An utterly compelling and charismatic performance from multi award-winning actor, “the supremely talented Bryan Burroughs” (????? The Scotsman), this ripping script combines humour, empathy and raw emotion to give genuine goosebumps.
A father’s final chance to connect with his son, this is a remarkable and unforgettable experience filled with heartbreaking emotional depth. You’ll be talking about this long after you leave the theatre - book now before it sells out. ????? The Sunday Times “Tragic. Funny. EPIC. Don’t miss it.”
Originally developed as part of ‘Show in a Bag’, an artist development initiative of Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.
