The Emperor’s Old Clothes
By Faye Couch Reeves
(Spring 2022 play for Players Company)
Everyone knows the story of the emperor’s new clothes, but what about his old duds? You’ll love this new twist on an old story with a playful theme of fashion and sewing!
In this version, kind Emperor Pintuck of Wardrobia is happy just being himself and prefers wearing his old fishing overalls instead of a traditional royal wardrobe. But his vain wife, Empress Chantilly Lace, thinks an emperor must look regal to be respected. So when her favorite royal staffer, Sir Starch, tells of a trio of tailors who can weave magical, unseen cloth that can only be seen by smart people who are good at their jobs, Chantilly is eager to give them whatever they ask for. Luckily, the emperor’s sensible daughter, Princess Blugenia, and the palace jester, Zipper, catch wind of the fraudulent tailors’ devious plan to make a fool of the emperor, and they try to craft a plan to expose them. But who will risk being honest with their royal masters?
