The Emperor’s New Clothes by Hans Christian Andersen

On Wednesday 31st May & Thursday 1 June in the May half term week, Illyria bring their unique brand of imaginative theatre to bear on Hans Christian Andersen’s much loved tale The Emperor’s New Clothes.

The Emperor is a lovely man but he is surrounded by idiots! His greatest joy is the monthly Grand Parade at which he always wears his newest outfit. But when two swindlers offer him the ability to identify fools by making him clothes which only the wise can see, will he end up losing his crown jewels?

All will be revealed in Illyria’s cheekiest ever show! Winner of the critic’s choice award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this production attracted multiple five star reviews on its first sell-out UK tour in 2000.

(There is no nudity in this production, although one of the actors may be a little chilly!)
