The magically inventive Dragon created by Vox Motus, the National Theatre of Scotland and Tianjin Children’s Art Theatre returns.

A story for adults, teenagers and children with vivid imaginations, told without words and featuring fast moving physical theatre, puppetry and original music.

Dragon tells the story of Tommy whose life, since the death of his mother, has gone from bad to worse. One restless night Tommy goes to the window and throws back the curtain to find himself face to face with a dragon.

Dragon was awarded Best Show for Children and Young People at UK Theatre Awards 2014 and appears at Edinburgh International Festival in 2015.

Supported by the ScottishPower Foundation.

Dragon is part of the Get Creative Family Arts Festival this October, a UK-wide festival of theatre, dance, music and visual arts events. Find out more at Family Arts Festival

There will be a relaxed performance of Dragon at 2pm on Saturday 3 October. Find out more

“As enthralling for adults as it was for children, it was a riveting magical experience”

Such a moving piece for adults and children alike. I blubbed in the toilets afterwards along with others. I would recommend and also go and resee in a heart beat! Amazing!!!!
