A live band of storytelling musicians bring characters from The Happy Prince, The Nightingale and the Rose and The Birthday of the Infanta to life, as they try to choose a new statue for the town square. Will it be the pompous Mayor, the haughty Princess or the love-sick Student?

“What delight... Enchanting, intelligent... One of the best Christmas kids’ shows I have seen – beats their Gruffalo, actually.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“Nicely gnarly stories... More richly entertaining, resonant and heartening than many a grown-up show. ”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“There’s constant inventiveness in the deceptively simple staging; unexpected thrills are always popping out... Charming,”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Fairly faithful versions of three of Wilde’s wry, moralistic tales... Spirited and skilful.”

Jo Caird (The Stage, What's On Stage)

“Capturing the nuance and intricacy of Wilde's texts while updating them for a modern, theatrical audience.”

Alex Wood (What's On Stage)

“Amiable... Intelligently packaged... Thoughtful... Enlivened by... jaunty music and lyrics... Has a brain as well as a heart.”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Energetic and upbeat... they power through the different roles... A raw yet cheery vibe... A delightful Christmas outing.”

Cindy Marcolina (Broadway World)
