A town ruled by a dragon has a chance for freedom thanks to a visit from Sir Lancelot. This comedic allegory by Evgeny Shvarts is deadly earnest, sending echoes from his Soviet world that still reverberate today. This show is part of the campus-wide initiative to mark the 100-year anniversary of the Russian Revolution.
Mild violence and adult themes; recommended for ages 13 and up.
