THE HAPPY PRINCE (article first published : 2000-03-22)

Next week, Catch 22 Productions will stage The Happy Prince. Oscar Wilde’s simplicity of style and satirical observation are featured in this children’s story of sacrifice and friendship. The ending may be a sad one but the moral is uplifting as puppets and live actors unfold the story of Swallow on his way to the warmer climate of Egypt. He comes to rest at the foot of the statue of the Happy Prince who, saddened by the poverty he sees around him, encourages the bird to stay with him through the winter months. He persuades Swallow to distribute the jewels and gold leaf that decorates the sculpture in an effort to relieve the hunger and suffering of the townsfolk.

Performed by Catherine Mace (recently seen at the Royal’s Backstage in Cabaret Sauvignon), Angela Hawkes and Ian Hadfield with direction by Shireen James, The Happy Prince will be staged at St Mary’s Church Hall, 8 Windermere Road, Greyville. Performances are from March 25 to April 1 at 14h00 and from April 5 to 8 at 10h00.

Book at Computicket or phone (031) 309-8801.
