There are only two knights left at the castle, after everyone else has gone to a jousting tournament. And it is their responsibility to find the missing princess and bring her home by evening, as ordered by the king. The king is king, so who are they to deny his wishes! On the other hand…Rosebush would much rather stay home and admire his new leopard print shoes and Bang is miserable because he is constantly falling, banging, and tripping over. The princess was very probably snatched by the dragon. They embark on a daring journey to the dragon’s den, where they find the princess—who doesn’t want to return home.

Based on the story by Norwegian writer Bjørn F. Rørvik, the performance encourages the search for alternative solutions that are beneficial to all involved. The story shows that often things are not what we think they are, so it is better to abandon prejudice. The expectations that the spectator has with regards to knights, kings, princesses, and dragons are turned upside down.
