Emperor's New Clothes - Illyria Theatre
Wed, August 2, 2017, 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM BST
Join us on our stunning sea-view lawn and watch the award winning and critically acclaimed Miracle Theatre perform their latest adaptation. There will be street food stalls, a well stocked bar and, if we’re lucky, a wonderful sunset to end the show!
2nd August 2017 - 4:30pm
Based on the timeless Hans Christian Andersen story, Illyria first performed this show in 2000 when it was Critic's choice at the Edinburgh Fringe festival and attracted multiple 5-star reviews on a sellout UK tour.
The Emperor is a lovely man, but he’s not the best judge of character, and is often surrounded by idiots. What keeps him sane is the monthly Grand Parade at which he wears his newest outfit. When two swindlers spin a yarn and everyone is taken in, what price will he have to pay? Will the new clothes they make really enable him to weed out the idiots in his palace? Or will he end up losing his crown jewels? All will be revealed in Illyria’s cheekiest ever show!
There will be a BBQ and a bar on the Bedruthan Lawn, we recommend you bring something to sit on and possibly some sunglasses as although the sunset is beautiful, you may want to protect your eyes a little.
As they say "the show must go on" and will take place no matter the weather therefore refund will not be given unless Miracle Theatre cancel the performance.
"Doors" open at 3:30, there is limited parking at the hotel, so please park in Mawgan Porth Beach Car Park and walk to the Hotel, there will be signs along the coastal path to give you direction, if you have a child in a pushchair, you will be able to park at the hotel.
