The Light Princess at Tobacco Factory Theatres in association with Peepolykus

The-Light-Princess

In a kingdom far away, lives an extraordinary princess; a princess strikingly different to any you’ll have ever heard of. Strikingly different, in fact, to anyone who has ever lived.

Because, you see, she has no gravity. Now you might be thinking, what fun – to fly and float and bound around weightless in the air!

But of course, it’s not as simple as that. Her windows are forever closed, she can’t run free and forever light-hearted; she can never take anything or anyone seriously. Especially not the prince who falls in love with her…

Come along this Christmas to be swept off your feet, as Tobacco Factory Theatres tell the incredible story of the princess who just can’t keep her feet on the ground.
