What would happen if a prince in a fairytale had neither name nor a story of his own? Who could he turn to for help and would the other characters pay him any attention?
Sound like a great preface for a play? As of Saturday THOC will be presenting such a pop opera (as they have named it) for children.
The play, I, the Prince, tells the tale of fairy-tales. It is set in a world where everything is beautiful, there are fantastic colours all around, and songs are sung and dances are, well, danced. But – as you may have already guessed – all is not well in this land as the prince is having some existential issues.
So he shares his problems with Snow White, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty but they don’t seem to help the poor prince.
Performances will be held every Saturday in September at 6pm, with performances from October to December taking place every Sunday at 10.30am.
