To Do List Daily: The Little Prince – Tue 9 Feb
The Little Prince | Arcola Theatre | 8pm | Until 13 February | £12
The Arcola Queer Collective present a unique take on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s French classic Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince), reaching out to the castaway in us all.
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Part of the Arcola Theatre’s Creative Engagement Winter Season “What Makes An Artist?”, The Little Prince sees the Arcola Queer Collective take a fresh look at Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic novella for children.
One of the most translated books in the world, The Little Prince (or, more accurately, Le Petit Prince) is a poignant and touching story of loneliness, friendship, love, and loss – and here, in the hands of the Arcola Queer Collective, the story is uniquely reimagined to speak to “the castaway in all of us: challenging our perspectives, opening our eyes and bringing us back to what truly matters”.
Each performance of The Little Prince will be preceded by a world premiere staging of one of six new short plays inspired by the production:
8 February – They Sat There and Talked by Damien Hughes
Directed by Ross Crosby. Performed by Tamir Pettet and Travis Alabanza
9 February – And Where There Once Were Two by Alexis Gregory
Directed by Lynette Linton. Performed by Alexis Gregory and Rubyyy Jones
10 February – Perfume and Stale Cigarettes by Lydia Cawson
Directed by Claire O’Flaherty. Performed by Bex Large
11 February – Handle With Care by Phil Rhys Thomas

13 February – Claire by Bex Large
Directed by Ross Crosby. Performed by Sheena Anyanwu

I am Joint Editor at To Do List. I like: nice pubs, film marathons, not doing real marathons, bad comedy, plays/musicals with shorter second halves, and the Oxford comma.
