Half-term performance

The Little Prince

Edge Theatre

Welcome to the incredible story of The Little Prince, retold in this live show by a pilot stranded in the desert.

Find out how the Little Prince leaves behind his own tiny asteroid and beloved rose and journeys through the universe, coming face to face with the baffling world of grown-ups! Have you ever heard of a king who reigns over nothing? Or a businessman obsessively counting stars?

Once on planet Earth, the Little Prince is welcomed by a mysterious snake and a truly wise and friendly fox before encountering the lone pilot. Together they discover the power and beauty of friendship and the complexity of love.

Based on the world-famous story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince is brought to life using Protein’s award winning mix of dance, humour and spoken word. With an original score by Frank Moon, design by Yann Seabra, lighting by Jackie Shemesh and video design by Daniel Denton, Protein’s new show invites us to look at the world through one’s heart and to reconnect with our inner child.
