The Reluctant Dragon
Presented by: Keegan Theater

Based on the short story and adapted by local playwright Mary Hall Surface.  The village of Guildermere blames the dragon who lives upon the downs for their dying crops and sour milk. But this dragon is a peace-loving, poetry-spouting fellow who would much prefer a cup of tea to a battle. When Saint George arrives, the dragon and his young friend face quite a challenge indeed. A charming tale of an unlikely friendship, this play for young people and families embraces the dramatic power of what happens when misunderstanding escalates into prejudice and violence.
