The island is sinking. The adults are useless. Time for the kids to save the day. Australia’s most accomplished children’s playwright, Finegan Kruckemeyer, delivers a tale of courage and invention that is brought to life in unexpected ways.

Pig wearing a crown

When you’re a princess you expect a fairy tale wedding. You don’t expect your husband to be a hairy, smelly and a genuine pig. The pig, of course, is an enchanted prince but Flora loses him almost as soon as she finds him. Taking her fate into her own hands, she ventures to the ends of the earth and even into the sky until at last she frees him from the evil spell that binds him. Drawing on Romanian and Norwegian folk tales, this magical show, which has its trotters in the worlds of opera and musical theatre, has delighted audiences in the UK and USA since its premiere in 2006.
