A father’s final chance to connect with his son.

Beautifully crafted and performed, this gripping, funny and poignant “tour-de-force” (New York Times Critics’ Pick) reminds us that life is not about how we die, but about how we live. This one-man stage phenomenon, from an Edinburgh Fringe First award-winning creative team, is a physical and vibrant show. An utterly compelling and charismatic performance from award-winning actor, and one of Ireland’s most skilled performers, Bryan Burroughs.

The only production in the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe to receive six five star reviews, Beowulf: The Blockbuster combines humour, empathy and raw emotion to give genuine goosebumps.

Presented by Pat Moylan, Beowulf: The Blockbuster  is a 'Show in a Bag' production and was first presented in September 2013 at the Dublin Fringe Festival. 

Show in a Bag is an artists development initiative of Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.
