Description:

This fairytale by Christina Andersson tells the story of a princess who cannot speak. The king and queen cry for help: Find a language for the princess! Two children, Algot and Vilgot, take on the task and go on a language hunt. On their journey they meet a talking stone, a mysterious lady, and a dragon. Finally, they find sign language. When everyone learns to sign, the princess has new opportunities in life. Will she work as a teacher, a doctor, or why not the president?  In the play the actors use Swedish, Finnish, Finland-Swedish sign language and Finnish sign language.
