“My name is Phyllis Princess James. I will wear this
crown every day. I will never take it off even when I am asleep.”
A new drama
about a family caught up in a pivotal moment of modern British history.
Princess. A cheeky 10 year old, with a plan to win the Weston-super-Mare Beauty
Contest. Trouble is, her mum is busy working several jobs, her brother, a
budding photographer, won’t even take her picture and then – The Hustler
In 1963 Bristol, as Black British Civil
Rights campaigners walk onto the streets, Princess finds out what it really
means to be black and beautiful.
by Chinonyerem Odimba, Live Theatre’s Writer in Residence, Princess & The Hustler is the
second national tour born from Revolution Mix, an Eclipse movement that is
spearheading the largest ever delivery of new Black British stories and follows
last year’s sell-out production of Black Men Walking.
