One of the best-known stories of global modern literature on stage. Who has not read The Little Prince, one of the best-known stories of global modern literature? The author and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novella, first published in 1943 and ranking among the 50 best-selling books in the world, is far more than just a fairy tale. Even though generally classified as literature for children, The Little Prince yields a parable that has become especially popular among adult readers. The simple tale juxtaposes the current world, which is driven by the endeavour to control nature, the dominance of technology, materialism and selfishness, with the pure view of a boy. The young hero finds sense in other things — friendship and love. He discovers them during his wanderings across seven planets, with the children’s universe clashing with that of the grown-ups.
