Horace, the son of a rich merchant, loses all his money. But then he finds a magic trunk that can fly! It takes him to a far away country, where he lands on a castle and  meets the beautiful princess Doris. They plan to get married.
Everything in Horace's life is perfect - or is it?
If only Horace wasn't so silly!

Extract from the script 'The Flying Trunk'

Mrs W: This is my dog, Joris
Horace: Hello Joris
Dog: Grrrr. Woof!
Horace: Tell me about Princess Doris. - is she very beautiful? 
Mrs W: Well yes, she is a princess. She is very beautiful. But you can’t see her.
Horace: I can’t see her? Why not?
Mrs W: Because she is in the castle. And she never comes out.
Horace: The princess is in the castle and she never comes out. Why?
Mrs W: You said this was the last question.
Horace: Oh - yes, all right. Sorry.
Mrs W: Oh, all right, one more question. Joris… why doesn’t the princess ever come out of the castle?
Dog: Lerff!
Mrs W: You understand?
Horace: Er... not quite.
Mrs W: Oh dear. Joris, the silly man wants to know, why doesn’t the princess ever come out of the castle?
Dog: Lerff!
Mrs W: That’s right - love. Well done, Joris, who’s a good little doggie?
Horace: Love?
Mrs W: Yes, love. A prophet said that the princess will be very unhappy because of love. So she never comes out of the castle.
Horace: Poor princess...
