Banyan Theatre presents the Polka Theatre production of
PRINCESS AND THE PEA
This quirky and inventive adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s bedtime tale is designed to stimulate young children’s imaginations. Played out among sheets and blankets with puppets, everyday objects and dreamlike projections, it is an intimate and visually beautiful one-person show created by Joy Haynes.
Once upon a stormy night, while the wind and the rain were howling outside, the Royals were all tucked up warm in bed. Suddenly there came a knock at the door and a very wet, very untidy girl was brought inside.
Become part of the playful and comic story of a girl who is not as she first appears, a prince in search of a ‘real’ princess, a clever queen, a tower of mattresses and of course a tiny pea.
After the show there will be a chance to meet the puppets, examine the slides and take a peek at the pea in the special ‘See the Pea’ exhibition.
