The Emperor's New Clothes

Based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen story
Illyria first performed this show in 2000 when it was Critic's choice at the Edinburgh Fringe festival
They attracted multiple 5-star reviews on a sellout UK tour

The Emperor is a lovely man, but he’s not the best judge of character, and is often surrounded by idiots
What keeps him sane is the monthly Grand Parade at which he wears his newest outfit
When two swindlers spin a yarn and everyone is taken in, what price will he have to pay ?
Will he end up losing his crown jewels ?
With larger-than-life characters, lots and lots to join in with, all will be revealed in Illyria’s cheekiest ever show !
Recommended for children aged  5+  and their families.
Running time: 1 hour 40 minutes including a 20 minute interval
NB - there is NO nudity in the production
Although one of the actors may be a little chilly…
