What kind of King would you be? A naïve boy raised by goatherds is discovered to be heir to the kingdom. Treasures and privileges are laid at his feet, but at what cost to others?

The achingly beautiful and tender language of Oscar Wilde joins the intimate and magical world of theatre company Slingsby in The Young King, showing at The Joan on Tuesday 13 August at 7.30pm.

Perfect for audiences aged 8 and up, this inventive take on Oscar Wilde's fairy-tale will also satisfy the whimsy of adults and grandparents alike.  A beautiful tale of kindness, leadership and imagination, The Young King is an 80-minute-long immersive play that transports audiences to the medieval days of old. It is more than just a show. It is an experience, and an affecting piece of storytelling that recently enjoyed international success on a well-received tour to North America.

Journey in wonder; to a land of kings and queens, challenging choices and rich rewards.

“The attention to detail is phenomenal…. The young king is charming, majestic and utterly delightful and a beautiful jewel in the festival crown.”
Gordon Forester, Limelight
