Emperor's New Kilt

26th November 2004 at 00:00
You've heard of the Emperor's New Clothes, but have you heard of the Emperor's New Kilt? Wee Stories theatre company will start touring its latest production for five-year-olds and upwards next week. Based on Hans Christian Andersen's story, it is described as "a festive musical comedy" for all the family.

The story takes place on the extraordinary island of Kiltie, an island that only clever people can see. It is ruled by a powerful man and everything on it, including the sheep and their wool, is part of his empire. But this is Scotland, so the emperor is called the Laird and his favourite things are his kilts.

The Emperor's New Kilt tours from December 4-23.
