Show Information

A Princess is anxious. Her father the King is sick. Can she cope with his death? And can she cope with the job of replacing him?

With the help of her friend Lily, a dignified acceptance of life and death sees her part of the way through.

But there is another world out there that doesn’t go by the same values - a world, sometimes stupid and sometimes cruel, that is obsessed with putting some people in boxes - and perhaps worse.

Lily and the Princess can see what is going on, but will their own values prevail? Drama, dance and music lead us through a life-and-death puzzle.

‘Engaging in both style and content, thought-provoking.’
(Gus Garside, Arts Manager, Mencap)
‘tremendously powerful, informative and moving.’
(Colm Gallagher)
‘An intriguing and exciting work that asks why, in this day and age, we still exclude some people from happiness, and from life itself.’
(Sarah Archdeacon)
