The Reluctant Dragon
Adapted by Mary Hall Surface
Based on the book by Kenneth Graham
Produced with permission from Dramatic Publishing Company

Running through November 2 through November 19.

Crops are dying, milk is souring, and the village of Guildermere has no one to blame but the dragon who lives upon the downs. The townspeople call in St. George to challenge the dragon to a duel, but this dragon has no interest in duels. This is a peace-loving, poetry-spouting dragon who would much prefer a cup of tea. This adaptation of the original story explores what happens when misunderstandings escalate into prejudice and violence.
