The Dragon Griswynd
In THE DRAGON GRISWYND, Mr. Turner portrays the title character, the last (dragon) of his kind on earth, who lives alone in an extinct volcano, high above a dying world. Desperate for companionship, he begs unexpected visitors to stay with him, or at least take him with them.
The play - poignant and playful - depicts a once mighty figure, like Earth itself, facing mortality. Ms. Robbins adds that the play is meant, "to be a meditation on loss and loneliness - the loneliness that comes with old age, old fangs, weak wings."
