"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly."
This play tells the story of a world-weary and disenchanted Aviator whose sputtering plane strands him in the Sahara Desert and a mysterious, regal “little man” who appears and asks him to “Please, sir, draw me a sheep.” During their two weeks together in the desert, the Little Prince tells the Aviator about his adventures through the galaxy, how he met the Lamplighter and the Businessman and the Geographer, and about his strained relationship with a very special flower on his own tiny planet. The Little Prince talks to everyone he meets: a garden of roses, the Snake and a Fox who wishes to be tamed. From each he gains a unique insight which he shares with the Aviatar: “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly.” “What is essential is invisible to the eye.” In the end, both the “little man” and the Aviator must go home—each with a new understanding of how to laugh, cry, and love again.
Drama by Rick Cummins and John Scoullar. Based on the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
