Illyria performing 'Emperor's new Clothes'

'Emperor's New Clothes' outdoor theatre performance at Lacock Abbey

  • 28 July 2017 7-9:30pm *on now

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.

Gates open at 6pm, so why not bring a picnic to enjoy on the South Lawn before the performance?

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!

Illyria is an Equity Outdoor Touring Guidelines compliant company.
