SYNOPSIS: In this retelling of the classic story “The King's New Clothes," King Henry's kingdom is bankrupt and the people are desperate. His solution is to marry Queen Charlotta, who he assumes is rich. He assumes incorrectly. Queen Charlotta is eager for the marriage because she's as poor as a church mouse. In order to look wealthy, the King spends his last bag of money on luxurious clothes that, he is assured, have the added benefit of only being seen by smart people. No one in the Kingdom sees the clothes the tailors are busily sewing, and an uneasy silence descends upon the kingdom. Who will have the courage to speak truth to power? A wonderful cast of characters round out this original and hilarious retelling.

This show has received many productions, from Millersville University in PA. to Stage Eleven in Denver and parts in between. It also works on tour: it's had a San Francisco tour and has also appeared in Wolftrap for their festival. The show is fast-paced and no one stands around for long without a line. The subplot of the romance of Barthel and Squagmiretta is something I personally enjoy.
