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 Slingsby. Journey in wonder, to a land of challenging choices and rich rewards.

The achingly beautiful and tender language of Oscar Wilde joins the intimate and magical world of internationally acclaimed theatre company, Slingsby. Journey in wonder to a land of challenging choices and rich rewards.

“There is every chance that this production, like others before it, will tour Australia and the world, and it deserves to. It is a Slingsby production, and that means it is suitable for the entire family, so head in for a magical tale, beautifully told.” – Barry Lenny, Broadway World (29 February 2016)
