A young goatherd finds out that he is heir to the throne and is dazzled by the riches and finery of his new life, only to discover that everything comes at a price… The classic Oscar Wilde story, The Young King , is a coming of age story that grapples with the ethics of beauty, leadership and compassion. The beautiful language of Oscar Wilde joins the intimate and magical world of internationally-acclaimed theatre company Slingsby (Adelaide, Australia), as audiences journey to faraway lands replete with rich rewards and challenging choices.
The Young King is recommended for ages 8 and up.
The Young King is a Slingsby production from Adelaide, Australia. Written by Oscar Wilde and adapted for the stage by Nicki Bloom
