“The textured curves of the backdrop then become the waves of a winter sea into which Beowulf dives for his epic journey to fetch the stolen sacred sword. Best of all is the backdrop’s magical transformation into a dragon: artful lighting reveals that the contours of the dragon has been there all along. Smoke billows from its nostrils, its eyes and mouth glow red. It’s a spectacular moment realised by set and costume designer Stewart J Charlesworth.” The Reviews Hub 


“The sea monster, also played by Philip Lee, is a chatty soul first seen glowing luminously in the dark, a terrific creation by designer Stewart J Charlesworth” Reviewsgate
