SCENE 3: FRONT OF THRONE
Hrothgar: For being so brave to fight the beast
And so courageous to make a leap
I, King Hrothgar, present these jewels
And chests of treasures for you to keep

Beowulf: Thank you, King Hrothgar, for this treasure


But what you did for my father has no measure
So I thought if I must repay you in kind
Killing Grendel was what came to mind

Unferth: Bravo Beowulf, for your showmanship


Has rid our land of the foul monster
But your display of strength was not needed
To prove yourself a combat master
If I may boldly say so, I’d say you were showing off
To boast of your impressive skill
When you could have so easily went
With sword in hand and shield for the kill

Hrothgar: Silence Unferth! Show some gratitude


There is no calling for that kind of attitude

Wealthow: My apologies, Beowulf, if Unferth seems rude


A little envious perhaps, and a bit of a prude

(Unferth walks away)

Hrothgar: Tonight, the whole kingdom cheers


For Beowulf has rid us of our fears
Endless food and endless beer
To celebrate a deathless year!
(Everyone applauds)
Aeschere: Three cheers for Beowulf and his success!

(Everyone cheers and applauds)


(celebratory music plays)
Grendel’s Mother: (in the distance)
Laugh all you want, you fools
But the worst is yet to come
For I am merciless, vengeful
My wrath will spare no one!
(Grendel’s mom barges in and kills Aeschere)
Hrothgar: Aeschere, NO!

(Hrothgar attempts to fight Grendel’s mother, but she escapes)


(lights on Beowulf)
Beowulf: King Hrothgar, I swear he will be avenged
I will kill Grendel’s mother for this
Gather your best men so we can go to the swamplands
and end this bloodshed once and for all!

SCENE 4: SWAMPLANDS
Beowulf: Tread this land with care
For here resides a beast fouler than the one I’ve slain.
And if you shall stir her wrath
You may never be seen again.
(Grendel’s mother appears)

Grendel’s mother: You dare come here, mortals


After you have killed my son?

Beowulf: We have come to end the bloodshed once and for all.
Get her!
(Proceed to beat the shit out of Grendel’s mother)

Grendel’s mother: You haven’t seen the last of me.

Beowulf: I believe right now I have.

(Grendel’s mother dies)


(Soldiers rejoice, and so does Beowulf)

SCENE 5: FRONT OF THRONE


Hrothgar: It breaks my heart to say goodbye
I have treated you as my own son
And you done a great service unto our land
So why must you leave now?
Beowulf: Sad as it is, King Hrothgar, but I have to go
I must return to my homeland
Should any danger arise in Geatland
I might be of help there

(bro-fist)

Hrothgar: Very well, but know this


You will always have a special place
In the people’s hearts
They shall never forget your face

(bro-fist x2)

SCENE 6: GEATLAND, 50 YEARS LATER

And so for 50 years


Geatland lived without fear
For Beowulf stood watchful guard
As King of their Danish land

But mayhem finds a way, it seems


As the forces intent on ruining the peace
Fueled with innocence and greed
Hatch a scheme and proceed

To steal what is not theirs


And stir an ancient wrath
One that will forever ruin lives
And lay destruction in its path

SCENE 7: BEOWULF’S THRONE
Soldier: King Beowulf our land…
Beowulf: Not again.

SCENE 8: GEATLAND
(dragon continues wreaking havoc)

Beowulf: Dragon! You will pay for this destruction


I shall fight you till my dying breath
And bring about your certain death!
(Dragon and Beowulf fight)
(Dragon bites Beowulf in neck, poisoning him)
(Beowulf stabs dragon, killing it)
(Beowulf starts to die, lies on the ground, people cry around him)

Beowulf: My fellow Geats, I bid you farewell


‘Twas an honor to have served you all
Till my last breath.
Now my final wish is for me
To be buried out at sea
So I would have had a noble death.

(Beowulf dies)

Townspeople: The King is dead!

(Townspeople cry, bury him out at sea as he requested)
