The Emperor's New Kilt - 4,6,7,8 December 2004
on Hans Christian Anderson's wonderful story of The emperor's New Clothes.
Wee Stories present the Emperor's New Kilt, a festive musical comedy for all the
family. The story takes place on the
extraordinary island of Kiltie, an island that lies far out on the horizon in
the North of Scotland, an island that only clever people can see. Kiltie is ruled by a very
powerful man, and the entire island and everything on it is his empire (even the
sheep and the wool on their backs): so he is the emperor, but because this is
Scotland, everyone calls him the Laird!
