Who should be the statue in the town square? Who deserves a place on a pedestal? Will it be the pompous Mayor, the haughty Princess or the love-sick student?

The Wilde Creatures, a band of storytelling musicians, bring to life Oscar Wilde’s classic fairy stories including The Happy Prince, The Nightingale and the Rose and The Birthday of the Infanta, and take you on a fantastical journey through palaces, forests and beyond.

Beautiful tales with original live music, imaginative storytelling and a generous dash of comedy.

"Each of the stories is told with constant inventiveness and charm by the cast... More richly entertaining, resonant and heartening than many a grown-up show."
**** The Times

"A lively and entertaining re-telling of oscar wilde's fairy tales."
***** The List

"What a wonderful show, filled with music, energy, story-telling and gentle audience inclusion... Kept the audience entertained and connected throughout..."
***** Emily, audience member
