Video: John Heffernan on Saint George and the Dragon
Heffernan is known for his roles in productions such as Oppenheimer with the RSC, or Edward II at the National in 2013, but now he takes on the role of England’s patron saint – a character seldom seen portrayed on stage.
Mullarkey’s version of the story sees Saint George in three different eras, ending in present-day, Brexit Britain. We asked Heffernan how he approached playing such a character, and about the messages behind the play and how it’s relevant in society today.
Saint George and the Dragon Tickets are available now.
