Our third production, Cummins and Scoullar’s The Little Prince, was adapted from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s book by Rick Cummins and John Scoullar to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the book’s publishing. Originally produced off-Broadway by Chrysalis Productions at the John Houseman Theatre Complex and earlier version produced and directed by Michael Harron at Playhouse by the River, Mt. Bethel, Pa., the play has since been presented at theatres across the United States.
The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, was published for the first time in 1943, both in French and English. This poetic and philosophical story recounts the encounter between a lonely Aviator, whose airplane has broken down in the Sahara Desert, and the mysterious Little Prince, who comes from a distant planet called B 612. Seeking to find answers to the many questions he has, the Little Prince has decided to travel around the galaxy – encountering different and strange characters along the way. When he asks the Aviator to draw him a sheep, an imaginative and poetic journey begins, leading the Aviator to find the meaning of what is truly important in life: “the essential is invisible to the eyes.”
