Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Nightingale” has been magically woven onto the stage. The tyrannical Emperor is under threat from the treacherous warlord, Red Dragon. When the Nightingale appears with its beautiful and enchanting voice, the Emperor is converted from the forces of evil and with the help of his loyal subjects - a bungling magician and Four-Winds, the dreamy court poet, the threat of the Red Dragon’s wrath is no more. Nicholas Stuart Gray writes with a keen understanding of the children’s theatre, and he has given us a play that will delight young people whether they read it, perform it themselves, or see it on the stage.
