Saint George and the Dragon

Production images have been released for the National Theatre’s production of Saint George and the Dragon, which opens in the Olivier Theatre tonight.

Rory Mullarkey’s new play looks to update the classic English myth of the country’s patron saint. Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Chimerica), the production stars John Heffernan as George, with Gawn Grainger, Richard Goulding, Jason Barnett ad Tamzin Griffin also amongst the cast.

Mullarkey, whose previous shows include Each Slow Dusk and Cannibals, has described the play as a “big, epic roller coaster of a play”.

Saint George and the Dragon runs at the National Theatre until 2nd December.

Saint George and the Dragon Tickets are available now.
