About the Show

A sly, playful, and poignant meditation on loss and loneliness…the loneliness that comes with old age, the loss that comes with old fangs and weak wings. Part of the 2018 Dream Up Festival

Banal, Confusing, Slow, Indulgent, Unprofessional

See it if You enjoy fantasy & sci-fit themes. You like absurdist theatre. You want to support a play in a very early stage of development.

Don't see it if You want a play w/a clear viewpoint. You want absurdism w/ any commentary. You want a play that cares: general sense of "do whatever"-ness. Read more

Quirky, Slow, Repetitive, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if You reeeeeally like dragons? Or androids? Or chess? I don't know. I guess if you like to see works that are in early stages of development.

Don't see it if You don't have an attention span of steel. Like, "Read crime and punishment cover to cover, and then do it again" attention span. Read more

September 10th, 2018

"The play's premise is poignant and sharp. Dramatically, however, 'The Dragon Griswynd' never takes off. The play makes some interesting philosophical points about aging, humans' capacity for destruction, and the consequences of loneliness, but it is not a biting and stimulating satire. Sadly, it remains resolutely inert for most of the running time...Directed by Joseph R. Sicari, the actors do credible work with the paper-thin and mostly expositional material given to them."
