Broken down in the Sahara Desert, in a race against time to repair her fighter jet, a pilot meets an extraordinary Little Prince. As he recounts his adventures, the pilot re-discovers the power of imagination, the importance of doing what we can to protect our natural world, and true meaning of friendship.
In Inua Ellams’ magical retelling of The Little Prince, the much loved story by Antoine de Saint-Euxpéry, the Little Prince descends from an African race in a parallel galaxy. He travels across universes, seeking help to bring peace to his warring planet. His journey as a galactic emigrant takes us through solar systems of odd planets with strange beings, and addresses climate change, morality and how a little person can make a big difference.
Children and adults will be transported to the world of The Little Prince with puppetry, music of North African heritage and rich Afro-futurist aesthetic.
