It's been a tough few months. Coronavirus appeared and has done it's level best to put pay to an awful lot of hard work, locking down the entire Theatre community and tearing up programming, touring plans and aspirations with it. As things stand no one is quite sure when theatres will be back open for business, but when that day comes, all of us at Dragonboy HQ are determined to be ready for it!
Lockdown has at least given us time to work on the script for the next show and Writer and Director Eliot Giuralarocca spent
a really enjoyable few hours with some fabulous actors on Zoom - reading, talking about and developing Tales from a Thousand and One Nights.
The show is shaping up very nicely and we look forward to the day when we can roar back into life!
