A contemporary version of the Anglo-Saxon epic, combining table-top and shadow puppetry, live music and poetry.

A poet performs the tale in verse, alongside an enchanting live score, bringing the story to life with a memorable cast of puppet characters, each with their own unique voice and style. Join them as they debate, dance and battle their way through a story about bravery, fame and humanity.

'This production is a dazzling feat of the imagination, and a reminder of the importance of using our own.' - IdeasMagAn excellent, modern, family-friendly tale... The Saxon storytellers would be proud.' - The Argus
