It said: “In a fascinating tale of chivalry and adventure, friends Sam and Charlie find themselves transported from their local bookshop into the magical world of knights, dragons and legendary tales.”

The show was made possible by funding from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, which was meant to help create an “accessible theatre offer” for youngsters between the ages of 14 and 18.
