Junior review by Cora Dibdin

Pleasance Courtyard (Venue 33), Sat 8 – Mon 31 Aug 2015

The Last of the Dragons is set in a kingdom where there’s a tradition that on a princess’s 16th birthday she gets married, but first she has to get tied to a rock and then a dragon comes and takes her away but a prince comes and saves her by killing the dragon. (You don’t see the dragons being killed.)

The princess in the show is going to have her 16th birthday next week and her dad, the king, has found her a perfect prince to save her. But he can’t slay dragons. The princess is better at fencing than any man in the kingdom and she wants to save herself. I would be like her if I was a princess.

When they were having a chase they did it in a funny way. It was slow and quick.

It was funny because, when the dragon came in, they all jumped on top of each other because they were scared.

I liked the scene in the cave. I could imagine the stalagmites and the stalactites. If they had had more room they could have made it more realistic. I couldn’t see the mountains or the castle. I could see the doorway to the castle and the flowers. I could see the green steps and the horses.

I liked all the characters like the princess, the nurse, the valet and the prince but my favourite was the dragon.

I really liked this play. It wasn’t scary. It was funny and exciting.
