An ode to the power of romance in a torturous world.


From the company that brought Merciless Gods to the Griffin stage comes a queer re-telling of one of Oscar Wilde’s most beloved and tender stories.

Little Ones Theatre’s award-winning The Happy Prince is a playful and poetic visual fable about the earth-shattering love that grows between a golden statue and a spritely swallow. Directed by Stephen Nicolazzo (Best Director, 2018 Green Room Awards) and brought to life by unforgettable performances from Catherine Davies and Janine Watson.

“Detailed, sumptuous and authentically sensuous.”
The Australian

“A flawless little jewel.”
★★★★1/2 The Age

Originally developed and presented by La Mama

This show contains adult themes, nudity, smoke, haze effects and the smoking of herbal cigarettes.
