In the Time of Dragons at The Edge Theatre and Arts Centre, Chorlton Until 9 March 2024 Tickets from £14.00 — Book now

Action-packed, witty with a good dose of heart, In the Time of Dragons is the eagerly awaited new musical from the creators of Spinach, which was a huge hit at The Edge in 2021.

Set simultaneously in 1965 and 2024, In the Time of Dragons is a feel-good show that looks to be a highlight of the theatre season. Sheelagh sings in a Cabaret Club off Deansgate and Jack is a music teacher. They both live, in their respective times, in a flat in Salford. One stormy night (and with the help of some seriously dodgy wiring) a rare phenomenon occurs and the notion of ‘now’ disappears. The past and the present meet and Jack and Sheelagh are thrown together as two unlikely roommates. Tripping through time, the pair search for answers.

Starring Tom Guest, Rupert Hill, Megan Keaveny & Hannah Nuttall, this premiere production, packed full of great musical numbers, will send you home beaming with a spring in your step. Perfect theatre for this time of year.
