ABOUT:

“If worship even of a star had some meaning in it, how much more might that of a Hero! Worship of a Hero is transcendent admiration of a Great Man. I say great men are still admirable; I say there is, at bottom, nothing else admirable!”

So frothed Thomas Carlyle; but do the heroes we love earn the love we give? That is the central question of Barzdukas and Bartlett’s Beowulf (and the Bard), the world premiere tongue-in-cheek comedy. This new play is a funny, satiric, family-friendly take on the oldest English epic of all, Beowulf.
