The Little Prince is coming to Woolwich Works, Greenwich

A fresh adaptation of the classic tale The Little Prince is coming to Greenwich this weekend.

Loved by children and adults around the world for generations, the story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been updated with dance, humour, words and music.

After it’s London premiere in 2019, the show returns to Woolwich Works on December 4.

Audiences will be invited to join the Little Prince as he journeys through a weird and wonderful universe, meeting fascinating characters along the way while learning about the value of friendship and love.

Stranded in the desert where he crashed his plane, a pilot meets an inquisitive boy who tells him a remarkable story of how he left his own tiny asteroid and journeyed through the universe.

On this journey, the Little Prince comes face to face with the baffling world of grown-ups, from a king who reigns over nothing to a businessman obsessively counting stars, from a mysterious snake to a truly wise and friendly fox.

Director Luca Silvestrini said: “I am delighted to be returning to indoor live performance with The Little Prince.

“It’s a show for everyone and the perfect occasion to celebrate that special combination of magic, storytelling and fun that only theatre can offer.”
