The National Theatre of Scotland bring a new production based on Hans Christian Anderson’s The Emperor’s New Clothes to the King’s Theatre from Saturday 12 to Saturday 19 April: The Emperor’s New Kilt.
The vain and tyrannical Laird of Kiltie has one true love, his kilts. In the lead up to the most important day in the Kiltie calendar, his birthday, the Laird wants for one thing, a new kilt “the likes of which has never been seen”. Enter Mr. Harris and Mr. Tweed, two dodgy weavers who give this gullible customer exactly what he asks for.
Han Christian Anderson’s famous children’s fable has been wittily re-imagined as a family musical comedy, told with Wee Stories’ trademark style of story telling, interwoven with Scottish music hall, pantomime and ceilidh.
