CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
An extraordinary visual story told without words, featuring puppetry, illusion and original music. Tommy can't sleep. He hasn't been able to since his mum died a year ago. Since then, life has gone from bad to worse. His dad is grief-stricken, his big sister ignores him and he's become the target for the school bully. Then one restless night, Tommy goes to the window, throws back the curtain and... ...a dragon is looking at him. Straight in the eye. Terrifying and destructive, but powerfully intoxicating, the dragon burns with the anger and hurt that Tommy feels and makes anything seem possible. They go everywhere together as if connected by invisible thread and suddenly life is much better again. But mysterious fires have started igniting across Glasgow's Garnethill.Performers Scott Miller, Martin McCormick, Joanne McGuinness, Gavin Jon Wright, Zhang Kai, Tao Yan.
