"I just never thought I’d hear Princess Charlotte say: dick move"


Charlotte has headed off to university & she’s ready to reinvent herself - however that’s hard when your whole life has been in the public eye. Nevertheless she’s ready to get stuck in and joins Durham University’s Dance Society - where she meets Kae. The pair start dancing together but it quickly becomes clear that there's more to their relationship than just dancing...

This punchy new play by Lydia Brickland examines a fictional future of the royal family & their relationship to queerness.



Praise for Brickland's work:

'Flawless delivery from beginning to end screams 'get these girls their own TV show' - A breath of fresh air in the current political climate'
★★★★★ Not The Front Row


'A perfect child-free evening out which results in the entire audience on their feet dancing & cheering
★★★★★ Reviews Hub


'Cathartic, irreverent, & full of heart - a lightning-in-a-bottle mashup of some of the hottest comedic talent in the region. Everything I’d hoped for & more!'
