The Hunting Lodge

A Unicorn Production

The party isn’t quite over yet.

  • By Ignace Cornelissen
  • Translated and directed by Purni Morell

You can’t dance with the prince. I don’t want the competition.

There was once a cleaner who married a prince. They lived happily ever after. But that’s not where the story ends…

The prince got ditched five years ago. His mum thinks he needs to get back out there and meet someone, so she’s throwing a party – which is good news for Daisy. Daisy has a plan; everything is lining up perfectly and she’s going to bag her prince. But Charlotte arrives, somewhat unexpectedly, and Daisy’s not happy about it. 

Written by Belgian playwright, Ignace Cornelissen (Henry the Fifth) and directed by Unicorn’s Artistic Director, Purni Morell (The Velveteen Rabbit and Baddies: the Musical), The Hunting Lodge is a playful side-swipe at society’s obsessions with celebrity and its unrealistic romantic ideals. 

This is a modern and feisty love story gone wrong for tweens and teens everywhere.

Please note: very occasionally, strong language is used in this show.
