⭐⭐⭐⭐ “An artful piece of children’s entertainment without sacrificing adult appeal….Whimsical, warm and very likeable.”  The Times
⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Charming, imaginative and playful”  The Stage
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “the most inventive and ingenious mini-masterpiece you are likely to see this year.”  Reviews Hub
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This is a brilliantly imaginative delight.”  London Living Large
⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Luca Silvestrini’s The Little Prince fills the eye and the heart; and is an ideal family alternative to traditional Christmas shows.”  Culture Whisper
⭐⭐⭐⭐ “St-Exupéry’s enigmatic tale of a stranded pilot (Karl Fagerlund Brekke) and a small boy (Faith Prendergast) who leaves his tiny asteroid to travel to Earth is delivered with quirky charm. Yann Seabra’s designs affectionately reproduce the author’s illustrations, and Prendergast is touchingly excellent in the title role, dancing from planet to planet with fleet-footed ease and delivering her often surreal lines with bell-like clarity. Andrew Gardiner and Donna Lennard perform a further eight roles between them. A packed house of Ipswich schoolchildren was enthralled from start to finish” Observer 

Protein will be touring The Little Prince again in October-December 2020. For further information, please email
