The fairy tales of Oscar Wilde spring to life on stage

A motley crew of storytelling musicians bring Oscar Wilde’s classic fairy tales to life in Tall Stories’ magical new show, direct from London’s West End.

Characters from The Happy Prince and other stories spring to life as the pompous mayor, the petulant princess and the love-sick student compete to become the new town statue.

Hauntingly beautiful tales for everyone aged 5 to 105 told with original live music and a generous dash of comedy.

This production originally formed part of Dominic Dromgoole’s year-long celebration of Oscar Wilde at the Vaudeville Theatre, London, presented by Classic Spring.

A perfect Christmas treat… Children’s show or not, this is one of the most charming hours I have spent in a theatre all year.

Each of the stories is told with constant inventiveness and charm by the cast… More richly entertaining, resonant and heartening than many a grown-up show.
