Puzzle Piece presents The Little Prince: Reimagined - a fresh, high-energy, modern adaptation of the classic novel by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It’s the familiar tale of a pilot who encounters a mysterious boy after he crashes his plane in the desert, told anew through object puppetry. You’ll never look at a paper plane the same way again.
Adapted and translated by Richard Lam (Soulpepper Theatre’s Spoon River, Of Human Bondage), who also performs various roles, directed by Jon Lachlan Stewart (Toronto Fringe Hit Macbeth Muet), and featuring breakout puppeteer Kira Hall (CBC Kids Studio K) as The Little Prince.
