Miscellaneous notes from the author
The Hans Christian Andersen story (of The Emperor's New Clothes) told for the stage as a traditional English Pantomime - lots of silly jokes and clowning.
Originally published in 2008, revised in 2012.
The King needs a new suit for his forthcoming marriage, and the royal tailors just can't cut it. The situation seems tailor-maid for the evil Barron Grumbleguts, who wishes to usurp the throne. He proposes a competition, and then engineers the humiliation of the king by means of an invisible suit. All comes right in the end, with the help of a deputy superintendent of vegetables, and Hercules, the performing flea!
