The Thwarting of Baron Bolligrew

By :
Production Company:

"A long time ago - in the days when dragons were still common - there lived a Duke.  And whenever news was brought in of a dragon ravaging some part of the country, the Duke sent one of his knights away in shining armour to deal with it."

With these words begins one of the most brilliantly funny and original children's plays ever written.  The story involves not only knights, dukes and dragons, but a fair sprinkling of magic spells, wicked magicians, thieving magpies and two wonderfully comic villians.  The ingredients are traditional, but the treatment is witty and wholly original, as one would only expect from the author of A Man for All Seasons.
