A big, bad dragon has reigned over a town for 400 years and now has his eyes set on its loveliest maidens. Right on cue enters the knight in shining armor - a well-travelled young man who is on a mission to save the town and deliver the damsel from her tragic plight.
But there’s just one teeny tiny problem. They don’t want to be saved!
Banned by the Post-War Stalin government for its anti-authoritarian themes, Russian playwright Evgeny Shvarts’ biting satire is spun out of myth and lore.
Shvarts borrows from fairytales and folklore to put together a comic conundrum about power and oppression that helps us understand how we as people seem to continue to feed the head that bites.
