George in the Dragon’s Den (1 star)

This article is from 2009.

The tale of St George is brought into the 21st century as the eponymous hero becomes an illegal Polish worker and the dragon a greedy banker. Performed entirely in verse, the spoken word dominates and confuses, while attempts at creating a ‘tongue-in-cheek’ performance fall flat.

Witty physical theatre as two actors dare to turn the famous story of St. George into a topical tour de force where pantomime meets Monty Python. Tongue-in-cheek for the brave and the meek.
