Fire and Meat

Rutabaga Story Co.'s new play, Fire and Meat, follows Grendel, the monster from the epic poem Beowulf. As Grendel tends to her dying mother, a bumbling Dane named Unferth finds his way into their cave. The two struggle to understand their place in the world and in each other's lives as the events of "Beowulf" slowly unfold. Features puppets by Rutabaga Lead Designer, Danny Gray.
