Venue: Southwark Playhouse
A sharply written new play by Abigail Thorn, creator of popular web show Philosophy Tube, is coming to Southwark Playhouse this Autumn.
The Prince is billed as show about the roles we play for other people, blending verse and prose to duck and weave through Henry IV Part One and other works of Shakespeare.
Swordfighting, lesbianism, denial, disappointed parents, and a magical doorway are all promised!
Abigail Thorn publicly came out as a transgender woman in January 2021, with her video Identity: A Trans Coming Out Story.
