Epic, goofy, comedic, and romantic, THE DEAD PRINCE follows the story of a put-upon princess who is told by every magic mirror in the land that her true love has died and the two were destined never to meet: for he was dead and she was alive! We join the play on the day she discovers it is possible to sneak across the void and steal him back; but does pulling someone from the brink doe more damage than you think? A musical comedy full of corpses, bat attacks, horrible misunderstandings, and quests... glorious quests.

In the tradition of the smash hits Mr. Spacky and The Mysterious Elephant, THE DEAD PRINCE showcases Strange Tree's patented mash-up of literary styles, which playfully bend the rules of normal theatrical narrative while drawing on the deep (and deeply eccentric) musical talents of the Strange Tree ensemble. Lively, inventive, and completely oririginal, for the past nine years Chicago's Strange Tree Group has playfully toyed with the entire notion of storytelling, featuring a hand-made "twigs and twine" aesthetic replete with bright bursts of magical realism in highly detailed, audience-interactive environments.
