Quantum Theatre’s ‘The Reluctant Dragon’ at Denny Abbey

Everyone knows St George has to do battle with the dragon, but what happens when the dragon simply won’t fight St George? Quantum Theatre presents Kenneth Grahame’s The Reluctant Dragon, an enchanting tale of a poetry-loving dragon and his friendship with a little boy who together hatch a cunning plan to NOT fight St George!

The Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey are excited to announce that the Quantum Theatre will be performing their adaption of Kenneth Grahame’s The Reluctant Dragon on the 14th August in the grounds of Denny Abbey!

You’ve got to fight him some time or other you know, ’cos he’s St George and you’re the dragon…”

When a boy finds a dragon up on the Downs he’s not in the least surprised. He’s always known the cave there was a dragon cave, so it seems only right for a dragon to be living in it. But this particular dragon is not a bit like the ones in fairy tales – this one writes poetry and doesn’t like fighting!

However, it’s common knowledge that when there’s a dragon you call for St George and, with a dragon in the neighbourhood, the towns folk are expecting a fight. Can the boy come up with a clever plan to save his friend and convince the townsfolk to accept him….?

The Reluctant Dragon is a touching, sweet and funny tale of bravery, friendship and derring-do for all the family.

One of the most famous figures in English history, Oliver Cromwell, was laid to rest at Westminster Abbey, but his decapitated head is buried in the grounds of Sidney Sussex College in Cambridge. Grisly but true!
