Brought to you by Tall Stories, the Olivier-nominated producers of 'The Gruffalo', let the Wilde Creatures take you on a fantastical journey through palaces, forests and beyond in this exciting new adaptation of Wilde's best-loved stories.
Once upon a time, there was a town that was dark and grey. The North Wind blew bitterly through the streets and in the town square there was an empty platform where a statue of the Happy Prince had once stood. There is to be a new statue - but of whom? Which of the townsfolk is important enough to be immortalised in stone and raised above everyone else?
A motley crew of storytelling musicians bring characters from 'The Happy Prince', 'The Nightingale and the Rose' and 'The Birthday of the Infanta' to the stage, as they try to decide on a new statue. Will it be the pompous Mayor, the haughty Princess or the love-sick Student?
Fast-paced and filled with original live music, imaginative storytelling and a generous dash of comedy, Wilde Creatures is a delight for young and old.
