The Reluctant Dragon

The Play

Everyone knows St George has to do battle with the dragon, but what happens when the dragon simply won’t fight St George? Visit the Museum on Thursday, 18 August for family fun entertainment in this delightful new adaptation by Michael Whitmore. Quantum Theatre presents Kenneth Grahame’s The Reluctant Dragon, an enchanting tale of bravery, friendship and derring-do for all the family.

The Reluctant Dragon

“You’ve got to fight him some time or other you know, ’cos he’s St George and you’re the dragon…”

When a boy finds a dragon up on the Downs he’s not in the least surprised. He’s always known the cave there was a dragon cave, so it seems only right for a dragon to be living in it. But this particular dragon is not a bit like the ones in fairy tales – this one writes poetry and doesn’t like fighting!

However, it’s common knowledge that when there’s a dragon you call for St George and, with a dragon in the neighborhood, the towns folk are expecting a fight. Can the boy come up with a clever plan to save his friend and convince the townsfolk to accept him….?

Find out in Quantum Theatre’s enchanting adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s, The Reluctant Dragon.
