Morgan Creative presents a dramatic re-imagining of Antoine Saint Exupery’s “The Little Prince”, translated and adapted by Oisín Robbins. This contemporary performance uses multiple different art forms such as music and audio-visual work in order to bring the magical story to life. The play explores our dwindling collective imagination and how we desperately need to hold on to the magic of the mind. The production is family friendly and most suitable for 5 – 11 year olds.
“The Little Prince” is a fantastical adventure that explores growing up and how the imagination we are all born with can save us. Antoine, the narrator of the tale, is spending a few days repairing his airplane engine when he is visited by a boy that comes from another planet. In his bid to help Antoine survive the lone days in the desert, the little Prince recounts his experiences hopping from one planet to the next, and in doing so, makes some startling revelations on adulthood, and what it means to live in this crazy, wonderful world of ours.
The cast includes Seosamh Duffy who plays Antoine & others and Alex Hughes who plays the Little Prince. The team is made up of writer Oisín Robbins, director Luke Morgan, producer Ita Reddington, composer Jake Morgan, designer Yvette Picque and lighting designer/operator Paul Dunning.
