The Happy Prince
About The Happy Prince
Oscar Wilde's classic fairy tale is re-imagined for the stage in a modern musical adaptation starring Phil Daniels (Quadrophenia, Eastenders), Olivier-award winner Janie Dee (Follies, National Theatre), Sam Archer (Matthew Bourne’s Edward Scissorhands)and Sophia Hurdley (Cinderella).
A seamless fusion of dance and song, The Happy Prince tells the story of a Swallow's faithful love for the golden statue of a Prince and their race against time to save their town.
Wildean themes of greed and corruption, set against the redeeming power of love and sacrifice, resonate with as much urgency in our world today as when Wilde first told the fable to his own children as a bedtime story.
