Based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, our play tells the tale of a prince who wants to marry a princess, but is having difficulty finding a suitable wife because he cannot be certain they are real princesses. One stormy night a young woman claiming to be a princess shows up, so the prince's mother decides to test their unexpected guest by placing a pea in the bed she is offered for the night, covered by 20 mattresses and 20 feather-beds. Only a real princess would have the sensitivity to feel a pea through such a quantity of bedding. The search for a royal princess carries the prince and his family through a host of exciting adventures that will entertain from start to finish!
