Dragon is a story for adults, teenagers and children with vivid imaginations, told without words and featuring fast moving physical theatre, puppetry and original music.
Created by Vox Motus, the National Theatre of Scotland and Tianjin Children’s Art Theatre, Dragon tells the story of Tommy whose life, since the death of his mother, has gone from bad to worse. One restless night Tommy goes to the window and throws back the curtain to find himself face to face with a dragon.
Dragon was awarded Best Show for Children and Young People at UK Theatre Awards 2014.
As enthralling for adults as it was for children, it was a riveting magical experience
Recommended for 9+ years | The show is completely accessible to deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
