An exciting adventure story designed specially for children from 6 to 10 years. This brand new NZ children’s theatre show is based on an ancient legend from China, directed by Ben Crowder (Bad Jelly the Witch) and celebrated writer Michaelanne Forster (Daughters of Heaven).

Chen Yang must leave his life in a poor fishing village and set sail across Dongting Lake with General Wong’s army. When the general shoots a dragon, Chen Yang saves the dragon’s life and helps it escape. Moments later, a fierce storm whips out of nowhere and destroys the general’s ship. Chen Yang is washed ashore on a mysterious island where he is put into a dungeon full of rats.

During his time on the island he falls in love with an enchanting princess, discovers the astonishing true identity of the wounded dragon, and like all great legends our hero in the end saves the day.

Directed by Ben Crowder (360 and Bad Jelly the Witch).
Written by Michaelanne Forster (Daughters of Heaven).
