Saint George and the Dragon

a new play by Rory Mullarkey

From 4 October
Running Time: tbc

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.

Making his National Theatre debut, Rory Mullarkey creates a new folk tale for an uneasy nation. Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Chimerica, Light Shining in Buckinghamshire)
