You’ve Got Dragons 2024

You've Got Dragons/Mae Gen Ti Ddreigiau

By Kathryn Cave & Nick Maland
Adapted by Manon Steffan Ros
A Taking Flight Theatre Company/Pontio Coproduction

“Dragons come when you least expect it. You turn round…and they’re there.”

Lots of people get them; thumping heart, wobbly knees, swirly tummy. And sometimes they make you feel alone. So, what can a child with a bad case of the dragons do?

A delightful tale of one child’s journey to come to terms with their dragons told in Taking Flight’s unique inclusive style. With live, original music, this highly visual, sensitive production is a humorous and touching exploration of the dragons we all face.

Featuring creative captioning, interwoven BSL and audio description, You’ve Got Dragons is a treat for the whole family. And remember… “No dragon is more powerful than YOU!
