Rattlebox Theatre Company: Beowulf!

Sunday, November 19


Rattlebox Theatre Company are coming to The Soapbox! With their production of … Beowulf!

“A majestic feasting Hall-Heorot, sits proudly on a hill. Built on the orders of King Hrothgar of Denmark as a symbol of his power and wealth. By days its gilded roof dazzles; by night its rafters ring with laughter and song. All wonder at and praise its splendour. Save one… In the wild mist – wreathed marshes, lurks a monster – GRENDEL. Full of envy and hate; he would tear down Hall Heorot’s doors and devour all those within! It is only the famed warrior BEOWULF who might stand any chance against this creature’s great strength; and reclaim the Hall for Denmark’s king”.

Rattlebox Theatre presents part of the famous Anglo-Saxon epic ‘BEOWULF’ in this small but perfectly formed adaption! This show employs engaging storytelling combined with clever puppetry; using many beautifully made puppets, sets and props.

The performance is accompanied with evocative live music played on an impressive array of medieval and traditional instruments (including Hurdy Gurdy, Anglo Saxon Lyre, Percussion & Gothic Harp ) by Steve Tyler.

SUITABLE FOR: Children 6+ and their families.
