When you're a princess, you don't expect your husband to be hairy, smelly and a genuine pig. The pig, of course, is an enchanted prince. Taking her fate into her own hands, she ventures out, until at last, she frees him from the evil spell that binds him. Based on a Romanian folktale, this is the libretto of a family musical.
When you're a princess, you expect a fairytale wedding. You don't expect your husband to be hairy, smelly and a genuine pig. The pig, of course, is an enchanted prince, but Flora loses him almost as soon as she finds him. Taking her fate into her own hands, she ventures to the ends of the earth and even into the sky until at last she frees him from the evil spell that binds him. Based on a Romanian folktale, this terrifically tuneful family play opens at the Young Vic Theatre in December 2006, with music by Jonathan Dove.
Alasdair Middleton's previous plays include Aeschlean Nasty and the libretto for The Hackney Chronicles, which like The Enchanted Pig is also a collaboration with composer Jonathon Dove.
