The Emperor's New Clothes

The Emperor's New Clothes
Stuff and Nonsense return to Quartz with a brand new show telling the story of an emperor who loves clothes more than anything, but, despite a wardrobe the size of Paris, he hasn't got a stitch to wear! With puppets, music and song, this inventive production is a show for all the family.

When two tailors promise to create him an outfit that's "never been seen before", our eccentric emperor doesn't quite realise the spectacle he is about to make.
