Sometimes the smallest things cause the biggest problems...... It's a hard life being a Handsome Prince, having to spend all your time looking for the perfect Princess to rescue, and attending silly royal balls. It's no picnic being a Princess either, especially if you're much happier climbing trees and fighting dragons, rather than looking pretty and wearing big dresses. Come and see what happens when fairy tale characters decide to do what they really want, and no-one is quite what they seem! Suitable for all the family, you'll never look at peas in the same way again.... Running time: 2 hours including an interval.Company Proteus Theatre Company.
