First published as part of a collection of short stories under the name The House of Pomegranates, The Young King tells the tale of a boy born to a princess and a poor woodland man. Snatched from his parents as a baby, the Young King is raised by a kindly goatherd in a deep forest, until one day he is discovered to be heir to the kingdom.

One of Oscar Wilde's lesser-known works, The Young King employs his trademark beautiful and tender language.  

According to Director Andy Packer, the story is a wonderful combination of hope, loss, death and new beginnings that will challenge the audience and encourage them to find their own path and stand their ground.

Need to know - The Young King is recommended for children 8 years+ and adults.
