The Little Prince

Book Now


“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, / They are felt with the heart”

A pilot crashes his plane in the Sahara Desert, and meets a young prince from a distant asteroid. This little prince has travelled the universe, and theirs is a tale of wonder, friendship and loss. After a life among the stars, one might want for nothing. But the little prince needs one thing more…

Arcola Queer Collective‘s sell-out production is back. This unique take on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s universally-cherished classic speaks to the castaway in all of us: challenging our perspectives, opening our eyes and bringing us back to what truly matters.

Praise for The Little Prince:

“Tender, funny and utterly brilliant… I urge you to beg, borrow or steal a ticket, if you have to…” – DIVA Magazine

“…poignant and thought-provoking, beautifully wrought… you might just leave with a better understanding and appreciation for the fabulous queer community of London.” – QX Magazine
