The Kings New Clothes

by Bob Bishop published September 2011


Suitable for All Groups

Price: 6.00

Bob Bishops hilarious take on the Hans Christian Andersen classic.


King Rudolph of Absurdia is vain, conceited and obsessed with clothes, but is duped by a pair of Irish tricksters into buying a magic suit. Meanwhile his son Prince Nugent is told by the mysterious Vidor that he will be disinherited unless he marries by the next day. Both strands of the story are cleverly brought together, and a satisfactory conclusion is guaranteed
