After a life of privilege, the statue of The Happy Prince now spends his days witnessing the town’s poverty, powerless to help. Until, one day, a swallow takes shelter between the statue’s feet. The two form a beautiful friendship, working together to help those most in need. But how much are they prepared to sacrifice, and what will they be remembered for when they have nothing left to give?
Told with a brilliant blend of vibrant puppetry, striking storytelling and a folk-pop fusion of music and song, PackPack Theatre present an energetic and enchanting adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic short story, for 7–11-year-olds and their families.
