“My name is Phyllis Princess James. I will wear this crown every day. I will never take it off even when I am asleep.”
Meet Princess. A cheeky 10-year-old, with a plan to win the Weston-Super-Mare Beauty Contest. Trouble is, her mum is busy working several jobs, her brother, a budding photographer, won’t even take her picture. How is a girl supposed to win?
In 1963 Bristol, as Black British Civil Rights campaigners walk out onto the streets, Princess finds out what it really means to be black and beautiful.
Princess & The Hustler is the second national tour born from Revolution Mix – an Eclipse movement that is spearheading the largest ever delivery of new Black British stories. The first Revolution Mix story was last year’s sell-out production of the "powerful, political, lyrical" Black Men Walking.
