Vox Motus, the National Theatre of Scotland and Tianjin People's Arts Theatre  present the world premiere of DRAGON.

Tommy can’t sleep. He hasn’t been able to since his mum died a year ago. Since then, life has gone from bad to worse. His dad is grief-stricken, his big sister ignores him and he’s become the target for the school bully. Then one restless night, Tommy goes to the window, throws back the curtain and…

…a dragon is looking at him. Straight in the eye. 

An extraordinary visual story told without words, featuring puppetry, illusion and original music.

A show for adults, teenagers and children with vivid imaginations.
