Saint George and the Dragon

Saint George and the Dragon

Synopsis

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), with John Heffernan as George (Oppenheimer, Edward II).
