About

"My name is Phyllis Princess James. I will wear this crown every day. I will never take it off even when I am asleep.” Princess & The Hustler is a new drama about a family caught up in a pivotal moment of modern British history and will be performed at Live Theatre Newcastle from Tue 9 - Sat 13 April.

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 and then – The Hustler returns.

In 1963 Bristol, as Black British Civil Rights campaigners walk onto the streets, Princess finds out what it really means to be black and beautiful.

Written by Chinonyerem Odimba, Live Theatre’s Writer in Residence, 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 and follows last year’s sell-out production of Black Men Walking.

Written by Chinonyerem Odimba
Directed by Dawn Walton
