Munchkins & Monsters return to Bedford Festival Fringe after their 2017 ‘Sell Out’ performance of Wind in the Willows with their brand new show, The Reluctant Dragon!
Long ago, in a time that has almost been forgotten, in a land unlike anything that you are likely to find today, there was once a kingdom but in this kingdom not everything is as it seems. . . Not all dragons are bad and not all people are good.
Meet Assipattle, a young girl who believe in magic and dragons! One day, her cruel and treacherous siblings hatch a horrid plan to banish her and take over the family farm for themselves. Alone and afraid, she finds friendship from an unlikely companion. . . Neak the dragon!
Together the pair become the best of friends but when word of the dragon reaches the King, he sends his best knights to rid the land of the creature. Will the knights succeed or will Neak and Assipattle be able to stop her siblings and convince the kingdom that there is more to the dragon than meets the eye?
Featuring playful puppetry, dance, songs and much more, The Reluctant Dragon invites you to a world of fantasy you’ll never want to leave!
