Saint George and the Dragon

Saint George and the Dragon

by Rory Mullarkey

Originally produced at National Theatre, London, UK

October 4 to December 12, 2017

About the Premiere Production:

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.
