Wilde Creatures
A motley crew of storytelling musicians bring Oscar Wilde's classic fairy tales to life in Tall Stories' magical new show, direct from London's West End. Characters from The Happy Prince and other stories spring to life as the pompous mayor, the petulant princess and the love-sick student compete to become the new town statue.

Hauntingly beautiful tales for everyone aged 5-105 told with live music and a generous dash of comedy.

'Lively and entertaining' ***** (List).

'One of the most charming hours I have spent in a theatre' **** (Standard).

'As warming as it is ingenious' **** (Times).
