The Sun Dragon


 Jacob is an ordinary boy with extraordinary dreams, where he and his active imagination take flight and soar high above the earth. But Jacob must soon embark on a magical quest to save a distant world from darkness.

His incredible adventures begin in his back garden one blustery autumn night, and end on a planet five billion light years away where he must face a witch, an oracle, four tricky traders and the greatest challenge of all, the Sun Dragon.

 ’The Sun Dragon is a truly magical hour of storytelling… a play that really should be seen by every child and every adult whose imagination needs re-sparking’ Ed Fest

‘as magical an experience as anything conjured up by Harry Potter or Narnia, and as such appeals as much to adults as the younger members of the audience’
