In his unique adaptation of the epic Beowulf, one of the oldest surviving poems in English, we explore a world of heroes and monsters in an interactive performance-game. Each show is like no other as our choices guide the journeys taken on stage, and we ask ourselves why after all these years, we still need stories to help us face our fears.

  • “It’s 1986. I am eight years old. And I am sharing my bedroom with a KitKatpinching ghost.” Inspired by his favourite film, little Gareth became a self-appointed Ghostbuster, launching an investigation into the playful poltergeist. Now, three decades later, with the help of home videos, retro toys and interviews with his nearest and dearest, grown-up Gareth is determined to uncover what was really going on inside his very own haunted house. We go on a nostalgic trip back to the 80s and a comic exploration of a childhood haunting where nothing is quite what it seems, all wrapped up in some formidable fashions, stuffed with sweet treats and set to a cheese-tastic, chart-topping soundtrack.
