    A frustrated author is trying to write a story. Four characters, lost in the author's mind, enact the story as it is written.They are erased and corrected, but the lines of power begin to blur - who is really writing this story?

    The queen wants to be seen, the soldier needs orders, romance is waiting for the love of his life, and the dragon wants control over their own identity.

    As the mythic collides with reality, where will we find these characters in the real world? As the fantasy begins to fall apart, what new stories will emerge?

    Ouroboros, the snake that eats its tail, gives the name to this surreal and dreamlike fantasy.
    This performance is part of Form(at) Festival: 2022 | Back in the Room, celebrating work made by students on MA:ATP (Advanced Theatre Practice) at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
