Enter the Dragons

Adult evening show for ages 16+ (contains strong language and nudity)

 

An archetypal Hero is reframed as a mature woman in the modern world. Gripped with fear at her advancing years, she sets off on an epic quest to defeat Chronos, the god of time, and halt the inevitable - ageing. Will she succeed?

Enter the Dragons is an hilarious, surreal odyssey through the challenges of growing older, which explodes myths about beauty, sex and femininity. Expect fantastical characters, ridiculous puppetry, extreme wigs, physical comedy and delightfully dark humour. Sixty minutes of laugh-out-loud joy, dissent and touching humility for anyone who is considering ageing.

 

‘Abigail Dooley and Emma Edwards are a brilliant comedy coupling: the writing is sharp as a witch’s nose’ Total Theatre

 ***** ‘Utterly hilarious, simply ingenious’  Broadway Baby

 

Written and performed by Abigail Dooley and Emma Edwards

Duration: 60 minutes. No interval
