The Young King

ManPAC Presents


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.

“There is every chance that this production, like others before it, will tour
Australia and the world, and it deserves to. It is a Slingsby production, and
that means it is suitable for the entire family, so head in for a magical tale,
beautifully told.”
Barry Lenny, Broadway World (29 February 2016)
“Every element of this delightful production excites the eye, stirs the mind
and touches the heart.”
Peter Wilkins, Canberra Critics Circle (5 March 2016)
