George and the Dragon, Minneapolis
Changing attitudes to mythic heroism binding force or divisive influence? All feature John Heffernan's engaging, unworldly George, first seen vanquishing Julian Bleach's campy Dragon in a medieval world where the wandering knight is the underdog branded a coward for fleeing after he failed to kill a previous dragon and where Amaka Okafor's Elsa is no drippy damsel-in-distress but a young woman who objects feistily to being festooned with herbs for the monster's post-flambe dining pleasure. The tone starts off light and part-jokey. Director Lyndsey Turner stages the combat in witty, exciting fashion so that it seems to taking place out of sight up in the sky. Two of the dragon's three huge heads spectacularly plummet earthward. Victorious George is acclaimed by the villagers, the red-on-white flag originating in the cross-shaped blood stains left in the gaps of his make-shift armour of homely kitchen ware.
