    Inspired by Oscar Wilde's The Happy Prince,this play is a hip, humorous and heartwarming parable about sacrifice and the lessons of true friendship. Prince Oskar is the spirit of a shiny, red, classic Corvette convertible—without a care in the world. But, placed as a monument high above the city, he alone sees the suffering below—a young girl conflicted by feelings of inferiority, a young boy without a home living in the streets, a writer who has lost the desire to write. With the help of a wise-cracking sparrow named Boid, the prince makes it his mission to help the townspeople. Learn More
