The Young King

By Oscar Wilde, Adapted for the stage by Nicki Bloom

What kind of King would you be?

A naïve boy raised by goatherds is discovered to be heir to the kingdom. Treasures and privileges are laid at his feet, but at what cost to others?

The achingly beautiful and tender language of Oscar Wilde joins the intimate and magical world of internationally acclaimed Adelaide theatre company, Slingsby.

Journey, in wonder, to a land of challenging choices and rich rewards.

“The attention to detail is phenomenal…. The Young King is charming, majestic and utterly delightful and a beautiful jewel in the Festival crown.” Gordon Forester, Limelight

“Every element of this delightful production excites the eye, stirs the mind and touches the heart.” Peter Wilkins, Canberra Critics Circle

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts
