beowulf vs grendel
Until I get a cease and desist from that toy company.
once, there was a hero named beowulf!
Three performers show up to tell the classic story of Beowulf.
Three performers: a bombastic purist, a pugilistic misanthrope, and a musician who really, really loves Van Halen.
Are we bound to tell a story just because it's always been told that way?
If the winners write the history books, who writes the story books?
Poetry meets meadhall meets clown in this 25-minute raucous battle over what it means to be a legend.
