The Mummers' Play, developed by Medicine Show's late artistic director Barbara Vann, to whom this season is dedicated, hearkens back to the medieval English tradition of mumming, where a band of players would bring laughter and merriment to the masses on the darkest nights of the year. For Spring to bloom, there had to be a ritual battle and death, followed by a resurrection and a riotous wedding. This script, based on the ancient tale of Prince George and the Dragon, has it all, with a contemporary interpretation fun for children and adults alike.

Over the years, Medicine Show has performed the piece from New York to Europe. Venues have included NYC's Citicorp Atrium, the New York Public Library and Central Park; in Europe it was staged at the International Christmas Festival in Nancy, France. There, L'Est Republicain newspaper called the production, "A great roar of laughter that bounded down the precipice of the absurd."
