The Dragon’s Tale

Presented by Hand to Mouth Theatre, “The Dragon’s Tale” is an original and whimsical reinterpretation of George and the Dragon, told in a series of flashbacks by the ageing Dragon himself, and his troupe of glove puppets. Musical accompaniment is provided by the equally world-weary Damsel in Distress playing the hurdy-gurdy.

Children will love the knockabout nonsense and adults will appreciate the hidden layer about growing old together!

The show lasts 30 minutes, and is suitable for a family audience.

 Thank you so much for bringing your delightful show to Newbury; everyone enjoyed it enormously and I was impressed by its charm, inventiveness, technical skill and musical variety.” Mark Eynon, Festival Director, Newbury Spring Festival.

“A great introduction to the magic of theatre for the most novice of theatre crowds…and the knockabout between kings, dragons and powerful mothers was no doubt born back in the dawn of entertainment itself.”  Eve Stebbing. Eastern Daily Press.
