The Princess and the Pea by Mike Kenny

Suitable for 3 – 6 years and families Running time: approximately 55 minutes Do you want to hear a true story? Well.. imagine a place where what you see is not what it seems, A secret place with a hidden castle and hidden stories, A place where the Princesses don’t know they are Princesses and the Princes don’t really want to become Kings, A place where appearances can be deceptive! Do you want to hear an exciting story? Then imagine one wintery stormy night everything changes, The east wind blows through the castle of secrets, blowing away the cobwebs, lifting high the royal mattresses, ruffling feathers and unsettling all who live there. Do you want to hear a happy story? Then imagine a real Prince and a real Princess, oh and a pea! In this new fantastical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea, Mike Kenny and the inventive tutti frutti team create a funny, original, beautiful retelling of this familiar tale.
