From Press Release
A PRINCE that claims â€œNO COLLUSIONâ€, a FAIRY GODMOTHER out on bail for insider trading, a PRINCESS that works for the BRUTE SQUAD, and a whole lot of BOBS.
THE PRINCESS IS THE PAUPER is a rollicking fast-paced roller coaster of a political satire. Set in a mythical kingdom, after a popular peopleâ€™s rebellion has ousted the former fairy tale administration. Our former Princess and recently-ousted King have to quickly adjust to the new normal, where the not-so-bright mob has taken over, and a less-than-noble ex-prince pulls the strings.
THE PRINCESS IS THE PAUPER is a brand spanking new play! First written in Toronto, then re-written 9000 kilometres away in Uruguay, specifically for this yearâ€™s Toronto Fringe Festival.
ITâ€™S A BIG BIG BIG CAST! 12 actors playing over 40 characters in 60 minutes. Guaranteeing that the audience will never get bored. Thereâ€™s lots of movements with over 30 scenes, tons of character changes, and a WTF interlude to boot. Weâ€™ve got a Princess and a King, a conniving ex-Prince, two fairy Godmothers, a Mirror, a Court Lamenter, a Witch, a giant cow, and a Mob full of Bobs.
