"Revivifies Oscar Wilde's story with bags of visual invention and colour."—Sunday Scottish Herald

Children will be captivated by this creative interpretation of Oscar Wilde's classic fable, a touching and delightful tale about doing good deeds for others in need.

Recommended for ages 4-9. As the performance begins, a girl and a boy arrive in a run-down park on their scooters, both determined to tell the story of a statue known as "the Happy Prince." Finding the props and puppet characters they need in the park's rubbish, the dynamic performers transport themselves and the audience to a magical kingdom. They act out the tale of a tearful statue come to life, who finds joy with the help of a bright swallow, becoming happier and happier as he gives his riches to the people of his kingdom.
