Much as we love Julia Donaldson and the other modern children’s authors, there’s a lot to be said for the classic fairytales that have been enjoyed by little ones for many generations. The Princess and the Pea is a popular one in our house, especially with our little girl, so we’re excited that there’s a new production of it coming to York Theatre Royal this autumn.
This new adaptation promises to be a funny, original and beautiful retelling of the story we know and love. Suitable for children aged three upwards, it’s not for the faint-hearted, fake princesses or those who have trouble sleeping at night!
