View theatre details
Tumble, toss and turn the page in this nimble twist on Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless tale. Disheveled from a rainstorm and forced to prove herself to her faithful servants, a pampered princess learns a lesson in humility—with the help of one pesky pea! A marvel of mattress-springing acrobatics and physical comedy, The Princess and the Pea leaps to life with queen-sized charm and nary a word. This vibrant performance is a co-production between Staffordshire’s New Vic Theatre, contemporary circus company Upswing and Unicorn Theatre, the UK's leading professional theater for young audiences.
