Silly Kings

Once upon a time in a kingdom far, far away lived a princess, four crazy knights, an angry fairy, a dragon (of sorts) and a very Silly King. The award-winning National Theatre Wales roll into the magical grounds of Cardiff Castle for a Christmas feast of family fun, adapted from the Fairy Tales of Monty Python’s Terry Jones.

Fly away with a cast of extraordinary characters and madcap musicians, telling tall tales from a kingdom east of the moon and west of the sun.

Lovingly made for children and very, very silly adults...
