The Little Prince may have returned to his own tiny planet to tend his Rose and look after his Sheep, but for a short enchanted time he returns to us and comes alive on stage. This play tells the story of a world-weary and disenchanted Aviator whose sputtering plane strands him in the Sahara Desert, and a mysterious, regal “little man” who appears and asks him to “Please, sir, draw me a sheep.” During their two weeks together in the desert, the Little Prince tells the Aviator about his adventures through the galaxy, how he met the Lamplighter, the Businessman and the Geographer, and about his strained relationship with a very special flower on his own tiny planet. The Little Prince talks to everyone he meets: a garden of roses, a Snake, and a Fox who wishes to be tamed. From each, he gains a unique insight which he shares with the Aviator: “Here is my secret. It is very simple. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” At length, both the little man and the Aviator must go home, each with a new understanding of how to laugh, cry and love again.
