Live Stream: The Happy Prince & The Selfish Giant
6 December 2020
Online event
Enjoy a live stream of The Happy Prince & The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde from the comfort of your own sitting room. The Happy Prince and The Selfish Giant are probably the best loved and most enduringly popular of all Oscar Wilde’s stories.

Michael James Ford’s highly energised and physical performance has been acclaimed as a virtuoso piece of storytelling and has travelled widely. The former is the bittersweet tale of a gregarious swallow who befriends a melancholy statue while en route to Egypt. The bird helps the Prince to alleviate the suffering of his poor citizens and in doing so learns profound truths about the nature of love and suffering.

It is now paired with a new production of The Selfish Giant devised and performed by well-known actress Bairbre Ni Chaoimh and Michael James Ford and three endearing puppet children, created by master puppeteer, Martin Cahill.

Readers are advised to check with the venue before relying on the details published here.
