Imperial love of clothes

THE show for younger children at Plymouth Lyric this Christmas is  Stuff and Nonsense’s The Emp­er­or’s New Clothes, on stage at various day times from Wednes­day 29th November to Sunday 14th January.

Get ready to meet an eccentric Emperor who loves clothes more than anything! But although he has a wardrobe the size of Paris, he hasn’t got a thing to wear for his birthday!

A new outfit must be found!

When two “designers” come to town with a promise to create him an outfit that’s “never been seen before”, our vainly eccentric emperor doesn’t realise the spectacle he is about to make.

Populated with puppets, music and song, this inventive and energetic production is told in true Stuff and Nonsense style, with boundless energy and great storytelling. It’s a show for all the family.
