The Happy Prince

R&D and Public Sharings

About the Project

The Happy Prince was commissioned by Watford Palace Theatre to be presented at their annual outdoor arts festival Imagine Watford. With support from Arts Council England, we spent two months developing a queer, family adaptation of this classic short story, using puppetry, storytelling and a folk-pop fusion of music and song. 

Our public performances had to be postponed due to the impact of COVID-19 and we hope to be able to offer updates on the project soon.
