The king's secret, 2012

2 men - 3 women

Vassilis Mavrogeorgiou

Can a heart love? Of course it can! The king's heart froze once and for all, and it can no longer feel any warmth. It does not love puppies, girls, friends, ham, sports, trombones, fish, birds, sunflowers. So heatless is the king, that he has locked in the darkest dungeon, in the bowels of the earth, the girl called "Gecko", the eternally absent-minded knight "Destroyer" who breaks everything he touches, the enormous woman called "the bear," even his troubadour. Unless they find the antidote, they will never again see the day's light. After all, as the king himself puts it, "lock them in an dungeon and they become wiser than a professional wise man to get their freedom. What's more, they work for free..."

A fairytale of giants, bizarre creatures and places, adventures in "the Hanging Tower" and strange encounters with "the Knight of the Mushrooms." The fairytale is intertwined with reality. The king's riddle-problem must be solved and love needs to conquer.
