The Hero’s Journey – The kingdom is under threat. The corrupt king’s knights gallop across the land extorting innocent peasants, the Witch of the Eastern Forest has lost her most precious enchanted sword, and, to top it all off, there have been reports of a vast and hungry dragon circling the stormy skies. The realm only has one hope left- the ancient prophecy, many moons ago, foretold the coming of a hero, and their name is… oh, damn it all, who was it again? Join a merry troupe of bards at Ye Olde Nursery Tavern (er, Theatre), as we tell an epic comedic tale of heroism, adventure, and magic.
