A new version of a very old story from Seth Kriebel

Tour presented by house
Before we begin, I should warn you: this story ends with a dragon. But every story ends with a dragon. If you make it to ‘Happily Ever After’ and there isn’t a dragon nearby, the story isn’t over yet.

Seth Kriebel’s Beowulf is an interactive performance-game inviting you to explore the world of a legendary story from our ancient past… without leaving your seat.

Illuminating the original epic, each show is unique, guided by your choices. An evocative soundscape accompanies your journey through strange lands, to discover forgotten monsters and bring a Viking hero’s tale back to life 1,000 years after his adventures. Why, after all these years, do we still tell each other stories about monsters that lurk in dark…?

Adapted and performed by Seth Kriebel
Devised with and directed by Zoe Bouras
