A story of a mum and boy learning emotional resilience and how stories help us figure out a complicated world.

Mum and Alfie are going camping – to get away from everything. To have some quality time together.

Alfie finds it hard to talk about his feelings. His Mum does too.

They share stories about Dragons! Scary ones, sulky ones, even angry ones – and they discover that their emotions, just like Dragons, are tricky beasts. Sometimes they need to be tamed, and sometimes, they need to be released.

When Another Dragon Roars fuses Altered Scale Theatre’s outstanding puppetry with Petite Ullaloom’s distinctive storytelling, promising a memorable experience for children and adults alike.

Directed by Kevin Dyer; devised by Lucy Fiori and Austin Mitchel-Hewitt.
