The Naked King was so random in story line and insulting to the audiences intelligence that I left in the middle of the performance. Over acted and painfully slow in pace the only thing I was impressed by was the actors' ability to memorize and...

Description

Who says that fairy tales are for children only? Can the belief that love and honesty just might conquer all be held only by the youngest of us? The Naked King joyfully affirms the opposite. The calamities in the world are no match for the wit, ingenuity and love the characters in this play use as their weapons.

The plot charts the engaging journey of a swineherd, who falls in love with a princess and is sent into exile by her disapproving father. In the next kingdom, he discovers a monarch who has not been entirely honest with his people (does that ever happen in real life?). This whimsical and entertaining cocktail of three Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales, The Swineherd, The Princess and the Pea and The Emperor’s New Clothes, has some other tasty, original ingredients.
