SUNDAY 31 Jan @ 1pm: Beowulf! with Shandon Loring
This performance will be at Fruit Islands! ONCE upon a time, in the far north of what is now called Europe, there was a kingdom known as Geatsland. It was a harsh country, with high mountains and narrow valleys, and a long seacoast with many harbors and inlets, and the men who lived there were famous for their bravery, on both sea and land. They were tall like the trees of their forests, and each man had the strength of ten. There were foes, too, to be dealt with. The great caves along the coast were inhabited by all manner of evil monsters that lived partly in the sea and partly upon the land, huge serpents with scales of brass.
In the Old English epic poem Beowulf, a hero of the Geats, battles three antagonists: Grendel, Grendel's mother, and later, after Beowulf has become king, a final battle with an unnamed dragon.
Join us for a very special and exciting presentation of Beowulf presented in Live Voice by Shandon Loring. If you have not experienced Beowulf before, it is time you did. If you have, it was not like this. You don't dare miss this one!
Grendel’s coming, Grendel comes… And you can’t run!
