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.

This is one of 14 events you can only see in Adelaide in 2016.
