Direct from the UK! Following rave reviews at European festivals, Autojeu Theatre lands in NYC for Fringe Encores.
An epic that inspired the human fascination with telling tales, entertaining over campfires and captivating imaginations. UK's Autojeu Theatre brings to life one of history’s oldest and most famous tales.
Beowulf, the hero of the Geats comes to the aid of the King of the Danes in a heroic epic that will live on forever.
We follow Beowulf on his 50-year journey from young warrior to revered King. See him stride, swim, fight and flounder in this physical, musical, (and VERY funny) stand-up tale.
This is Beowulf as you have never seen him. A stand-up-saga adventure. Riotously funny.
Created/devised by Sam Gibbs and Pete Buffery. Original music and sound by Pete Buffery. Produced by Autojeu Theatre, autojeutheatre.co.uk
“Beowulf is an imaginative comic romp through the tulips that edge alongside and around the footsteps left by vaudeville. It defies categorisation, and not in a bad way. At its heart is an unlikely, but genuinely remarkable, comic duo.” - BRITISHTHEATRE.COM
“...despite some dazzling other shows at Prague Fringe this year, this is easily one of the best.” - PRAGUE POST
