The fourth wise man

A Unicorn production

A Tale of one man and his camel...

  • Written by Purni Morell
  • Directed by Lee Lyford

Everyone has heard of the Three Wise Men, but have you heard of Artaban, the fourth?

One day Artaban, the wisest of them all, spots a beautiful new star in the sky. It's the biggest and brightest star he has ever seen, and he knows it will lead him to something special. A special baby in fact, so special that everything (and that means everything) must be perfect.

Join Artaban as he prepares for a momentous journey. But what should he wear? What gift should he bring? And where on earth will he find the right camel?

A funny and heart-warming show about one man and an elusive camel that will leave audiences with a decidedly Christmassy glow.

Designed by Verity Quinn 
Sound design by Malachy Orozco
Lighting design by Ziggy Jacobs-Wyburn 
Music composed and performed by Attab Haddad
Performed by Ritu Arya and Philip Arditti
