    This fun, frenetic and freewheeling farce updates the Old English poem about the warrior Beowulf and is told through the eyes of the epic’s writer, known only as “the bard.” In this version of the story, Beowulf is an out-of-shape prince, while the bard is a desperate poet struggling with a case of writer’s block. This retelling also introduces the bloodthirsty warrior princess Gunborg, whose quest to reach her heroic destiny is ignored by her overprotective father, the king. Learn More
