The Little Prince

Adapted by Inua Ellams

Children and adults will be transported to the world of the Little Prince with puppetry, music of North African heritage and a rich Afrofuturist aesthetic.

Fuel presents  The Little Princein association with English Touring Theatre

Broken down in the Sahara Desert, desperate to repair her fighter jet, a pilot meets an extraordinary Little Prince. As he recounts his adventures, the pilot re-discovers the power of belief, the importance of doing what we can to protect our natural world, and the true meaning of friendship.

In Inua Ellams’ magical retelling, the Little Prince descends from an African race in a parallel galaxy. He travels across time and space seeking help to bring peace to his warring planet. His journey as a galactic emigrant addresses climate change, morality, takes us through solar systems of odd planets with strange beings, and shows how even a little thing can make a big difference.
