Happy
Prince

The play, suitable for all ages, tells the tale of a prince who used to be happy.

When he dies, a statue is made of him in gold and precious jewels. As a statue he sees around him a lot more misery and poverty than he saw when he was alive and living in a plush castle. With the help of a swallow, he sets about distributing the precious jewels on the statue to the poor.
