Gods and Monsters have made a last minute change to their repertoire this summer, offering 20,000 free seats to a family production celebrating Poland's mythology.

Collaborating with Polish theatre maker Nastazja Domaradzka, Gods and Monsters will bring to life Krakow's Dragon of Wawel, one of Poland’s most enduring, much loved and iconic myths. The Wawel Dragon, adapted and directed by Nastazja Domaradzka and Phil Willmott, will tell the story of the ingenious, witty and daring folk who tried to defeat the dragon beneath Wawel Castle which is, to this day, one of Poland's most popular visitor attractions.

The Wawel Dragon will play alongside a new rock musical of Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment, with songs by the legendary Toyah Willcox and her song-writing partner Simon Darlow.

London’s Free Open-Air Theatre Season offers 40,000 free tickets for great theatre within the heart of London. Running since 2003, this is still London’s only ‘free to all’ annual festival of theatre. There’s no need to book so just turn up and take a seat! The theatre season is part of London Bridge City Summer Festival which runs 1st June – 31st October 2016.
