Written by Lorna Evans, who wrote the highly successful adaptation of 1001 Arabian Nights for our 2022 summer tour, Here be Dragons is a series of Somerset folklore tales of the wonderful creatures to be ‘found’ around the county.  It promises to be both entertaining and informative about these wonderful, strange creatures.

Here is most of our cast - who are playing over 100 roles between them!
