By Little Ones Theatre
25 June - 6 July 2019
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.”
“A flawless little jewel.”
★★★★1/2 The Age
Originally developed and presented by La Mama
