A unique and interactive performance of the epic Beowulf

Before we begin, I should warn you: This story ends with a dragon. But every story ends with a dragon. If you make it to ‘Happily Ever After’ and there isn’t a dragon nearby… the story isn’t over yet.

Seth Kriebel’s Beowulf is an interactive performance-game inviting you to explore the world of a legendary story from our ancient past… without leaving your seat. An evocative soundscape accompanies your journey through strange lands, discovering forgotten monsters and bringing a Viking hero’s tale back to life 1,000 years after his adventures.

Each show is unique, guided by your choices, illuminating the original epic and asking why, after all these years, we still tell each other stories about monsters that lurk in dark.

 ‘Delivers both laughter and poetry. ★★★★’ - The Stage

For ages 12+. (This is a guideline only, there is no adult content but the show is highly interactive and, in past performances, audience members have occasionally used offensive language.)


This event first took place in Autumn 2018 and returns due to exceptional demand.

Seth Kriebel makes unusual performance, often inspired by games. His loose trilogy of interactive performance-games (The Unbuilt Room, A House Repeated and We This Way) have been presented in venues including the British Library, Brighton International Festival, Turner Contemporary (Margate), Battersea Arts Centre, Summerhall (Edinburgh), The Science Museum (London) and continue to tour nationally. Seth was the founder of the artist-development company Rules and Regs, which produced residency programmes across England and internationally for artists working in performance and live art from 2004 - 2013. 

Supported by the National Lottery through the Arts Council England
