Based on Oscar Wilde’s best loved tales, including The Happy Prince and The Nightingale and the Rose, the spectacular Wilde Creatures show features original live music, imaginative storytelling and a generous dash of comedy.

“A raggle-taggle bunch of storytellers recount vivid tales of spoilt brats, lovelorn students and a selfless statue in this jaunty, thoughtful family show.” The Guardian
