Wilde Creatures - 2017 - West End


Tall Stories, the Olivier-nominated producers of THE GRUFFALO, present a sparkling new musical adventure for everyone aged 5-105. Let the WILDE CREATURES take you on a fantastical journey through palaces, forests and beyond in this exciting new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic fairy tales.

A live band of storytelling musicians bring characters from 'The Happy Prince', 'The Nightingale and the Rose' and 'The Birthday of the Infanta' to life, as they try to choose a new statue for the town square. Will it be the pompous Mayor, the haughty Princess or the love-sick Student?

Hauntingly beautiful tales with original live music, imaginative storytelling and a generous dash of comedy.
