In the middle of the Middle Ages, Morton Montesque's troupe of travelling players happily believe they've volunteered to perform their play about a dragon for King Stanley The Stern. Actually, they've volunteered to slay a real dragon! When they discover their mistake, it's too late to back out - but how can they succeed where so many brave heroes have failed? And this is one nasty, scary dragon! Fortunately, they'll get help from a bookish prince who knows the secret of dragon snot, a high-born lady disguised as a peasant, a con woman and a pair of stinky shoes! But will it all be enough to keep them from becoming dragon food? This play is full of humor and excitement, thrills, danger, laughter and true love. What more could you ask for? It is... a play about a dragon!
A Play About A Dragon was first performed by the Bedford Middle School in Bedford, PA on March 21, 2005.
