Peter Whelan's fine play adaptation (with songs) of Hans Christian Andersen's famous story is intelligent, funny and witty, ideal for performance to children by adults or young people. A common soldier meets varied fortunes as he gains and then loses a vast wealth, is sorely tested by many evils and finally marries the King's daughter and finds the peace and happiness he has sought.
