Nathaniel Justiniano & Ava Roy; Music by Charlie Gurke

Nathaniel Justiniano and Ava Roy
HEROMONSTER, created and performed by Nathaniel Justiniano and Ava Roy of We Players, is less a play with a story line and more poetry in motion with loose, vague references to the original Beowulf.  The result is always intriguing, often mesmerizing, and at times shocking and startling.  The result is also confusing in referents, frustrating to grasp intended meaning, and void of answers to the many questions it raises – all of which could be the raison d’etre of the creators.

For my full review, please check out Talkin' Broadway:

Rating: 3 E’s

We Players continues to present HEROMONSTER at the Fort Mason Center Chapel, San Francisco, through November 1, 2015.  Tickets are available at
