#12 The Little Prince and the Pilot

Children's ( Theatre, Family ) Greens, Pleasance Courtyard

Two veteran actors bringing together an abridged Little Prince and excerpts from other Saint-Exupéry writings into one highly ambitious, fast cut show for children and child-minded grown-ups.

Extremely difficult to follow for a grown-up, but had moments of amusing audience participation for the kids. No writing down, for sure. Perhaps in need of a strong directorial hand.

Minimal staging, confident acting in many roles from the stars. Breathtaking pace, impossible to keep up, yet grew tiresome towards the end. Restless adults. Memorable highlights might carry it for the children, but this show is not for anyone else.
