The Emperors New Kilt
12/04/2008 - 07/06/2008
Based on The Emperor’s New Clothes by Hans Christian Andersen.
The vain and tyrannical Laird of Kiltie has one true love, his kilts. In the lead up to the most important day in the Kiltie calendar, his birthday, the Laird wants for one thing, a new kilt “the likes of which has never been seen”.
Enter Mr Harris and Mr Tweed, two dodgy weavers who give this gullible customer exactly what he asks for.
Hans Christian Anderson’s famous children’s fable has been wittily re-imagined as a family musical comedy, told with Wee Stories’ trademark style of story telling, interwoven with Scottish music hall, pantomime and ceilidh.
A National Theatre of Scotland and Wee Stories co-production.
Wee Stories has been producing high quality family theatre since 1995. Previous shows include: Is This a Dagger, a one man Macbeth; the epic tale of Arthur, the story of a King; Treasure Island, a sea adventure; and their Christmas show, Jock and the Beanstalk.
WINNER Best Show for Children and Young People: Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland 2007-2008.
