Dragon Play


In rural Texas, a teenage boy and a dragon fall in love. A thousand miles north, a woman’s fragile marriage is tested when her fire-breathing ex-lover arrives on her doorstep. A darkly romantic drama, this regional premiere explores longing, loss, and the choices we make, in a world where time is fluid and people can be dragons.

10 words or less: Dragons are people and love is beautifully complicated.
Rated: R
