Rehearsal images for Saint George and the Dragon at the National Theatre
Rehearsal images have been released for Saint George and the Dragon, a new play by Rory Mullarkey based on the classic English myth.
Directed by Lyndsey Turner, the play is about a down on his luck knight who returns home to his village to find it has been taken over by a dragon. Playwright Mullarkey has described the process for creating the play as “making a folk talk from scratch”, comparing it to superhero blockbusters on screen that aren’t so much seen on stage.
It will star John Heffernan (Oppenheimer) as George, with a cast that includes Gawn Grainger, Richard Goulding, Tamzin Griffin, Stephanie Jacob, Jeff Rawle and Kirsty Rider.
Saint George and the Dragon Tickets are available now.
