Two babies, born at the same moment, under the same moon. One born a princess in a palace, the other the son of a poor woodcutter. A prophecy foretells they will marry, but the arrogant King will stop at nothing to prevent his daughter marrying a commoner.

An enchanting tale of love against the odds and an unattainable quest with many surprises along the way!

Staged on a transverse set in which the audience become part of the performance, with evocative live music from harpist Jennifer Port, The Sun, the Moon and a boy called River is a magical night out for the whole family.

Wee Stories have found their heartland in this artlessly accomplished mix of crafted narrative, imaginatively-detailed staging and uncondescending, versatile performances.  Fated to be a hit with young audiences and families wherever it now tours.  The Herald
