The Happy Prince
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Sue Casson's 'charming and radiant' (AYoungerTheatre.com) musical adaptation of Oscar Wilde's classic parable, directed by Tom Blackmore returns to the Fringe after its 2012 success. The enduring story of how a statue prince and migrating swallow redeem the poverty of a city is brought imaginatively up-to-date by a cast of four and a piano, exploring how a tale is told and bringing alive for the audience all the tricks of the trade. This 'enchanting' (MusicalTalk.co.uk) production boasts an original score with 'witty lyrics and soaring melodies' (Big Issue).
