Saint George and the Dragon
A folk tale for an uneasy nation.
A village. A dragon. A damsel in distress.
Into the story walks George: wandering knight, freedom fighter, enemy of tyrants the world over. One epic battle later and a nation is born.
As the village grows into a town, and the town into a city, the myth of Saint George which once brought a people together, threatens to divide them.
Rory Mullarkey creates a new folk tale for an uneasy nation. Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Chimerica, Light Shining in Buckinghamshire), with John Heffernan (Oppenheimer, Edward II) as George.
This play is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Plays Award.
