Making his National Theatre debut, Rory Mullarkey creates a new folk tale for an uneasy nation.
Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Chimerica, Light Shining in Buckinghamshire).
A folk tale for an uneasy nation.
A damsel in distress.
Into the story walks George: wandering knight, freedom fighter, enemy of tyrants the world over.
One epic battle later and a nation is born.
As the village grows into a town, and the town into a city, the myth of Saint George which once brought a people together, threatens to divide them.
