The Little Prince at Z-arts, Manchester 20 — 22 February 2020 Tickets from £6.00 — Book now

The Little Prince is an enchanting, timeless story, which has been brought right up to date at Z-arts this February half term. It has been adapted for stage by Fuel Theatre, from the beautiful book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The play is the first work for children from award-winning playwright Inua Ellams, who wrote the hugely successful, The Barbershop Chronicles.

This magical retelling of a popular tale invites us to follow the Little Prince as he descends from an African race in a parallel galaxy. He has traveled across time and space, seeking help to bring peace to his warring planet. On planet Earth he meets a pilot, broken down in the Sahara Desert and desperate to repair her fighter jet. He shares with her his adventures, and the pilot re-discovers the power of imagination, the importance of doing what we can to protect our natural world, and the true meaning of friendship.

The Little Prince is an inspiring story with environmental issues at its core. The Little Prince’s journey as a galactic emigrant addresses climate change, morality and and shows how even a little thing can make a big difference.

The whole family will be transported to the world of the Little Prince with it’s skilful puppetry and North African music. The aesthetic of the production is striking and was designed by Miriam Nabarro (associate artist with award winning 20 Stories High Theatre), with music by Cassie Kinoshi.

Take a journey to the stars and beyond in this thought provoking, magical tale…

Recommended for children aged 5 and over.
