Who said melodramas had to be western? Here s a whimsically fun melodrama set in medieval times!
The young and beautiful Princess Patience Virtue is about to come of age and ascend the throne as queen. But there s a catch. According to law, she must marry in order to take the throne, and the man she marries must be a king. Alas! If she cannot find a king to marry, the vile and nasty Count Backward from Ten becomes king!
Almost all the eligible kings in the land turn out to be not-so-eligible, so the fair princess s only hope is King Marshall Law, who is expected any time. But with the count and his equally evil cohorts sabotaging Patience s attractiveness and the king s decision to disguise himself as his jester, Hugh Morris, does true love even stand a chance to triumph over evil?
Filled with all sorts of hilarious mix-ups, this delightfully fresh take on an old genre premiered at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
