Adapted from the original medieval legend, this script re-tells the famous tale of "knight in shining armor saves damsel in distress" with wit and humor.

This script comes with a 2-page teacher guide featuring:

  • story summary
  • historical background: knights, damsels, and George's status as a saint
  • teachable terms: foreshadowing, theme, wordplay, puns, simile, tone, symbolism, characterization, romanticism vs. realism, anachronism
