'The Death of a Dragon Slayer'

PORTSMOUTH — The Players’ Ring will present “The Death of a Dragon Slayer” - June 20-29 at 105 Marcy Street in Portsmouth.

In and out of a classroom, a young teacher and her challenged student navigate the sometimes poetic, often turbulent waters of High School life. Where does an outsider turn to when his world collapses? What happens when one teacher makes a connection to an outcast? This is a story about the dedication of an educator and the impact one person can have on many lives.

Ben, a student with Asperger’s Syndrome struggles to make sense of a world where he is expected to understand others. Marie Marquette, his special education teacher, works to find ways her student can appreciate what this world can offer while preserving what matters to him. During the course of their journey, they encounter bullying, politics, poetry and Spanish. In the end they realize what is meant by a life-long education.

Performances are held on Fridays and Saturdays at 10:00 p.m. and Sundays at 9:00 p.m.

Tickets are $12.00 General, $10.00 for Students, Seniors, and Members. All proceeds from the show will go to NH anti-bullying programs.
