Kaspar Hauser: The Open Secret of the Foundling Prince

                  An innocent boy imprisoned in a dark cell for most  of his childhood.  
                     Who committed this crime and why?  Who was Kaspar Hauser?

 Michaelmas Day 29 September 2012 will be the 200th anniversary of the birth of Kaspar Hauser, the Child of Europe whose life Rudolf Steiner identified as being of great significance and who was one of the inspirations of the Camphill Movement.

In celebration of this, Glen Williamson will be performing his one man show; "Kaspar Hauser, the Open Secret of the Foundling Prince" in Camphill Community Ballytobin on Saturday 22 September.

Told by actor and storyteller Glen Williamson

Created as an epic fairytale with historical interludes, this story includes esoteric interpretations as well as the latest scientific research about one of 19th Century Europe’s most compelling figures.
            Castalia Hall, Camphill Ballytobin, Callan Saturday 22 September 2012 at 7.30pm
