Strange Tree Group presents THE DEAD PRINCE.
Is it a fairytale, a folktale or a muzical? Yes.
Playwright Emily Schwartz has concocted a play-full original. Schwartz’s story is about a princess and her quest for true love. The happily-ever after is challenging because her prince charming is dead. Imagine “Princess Bride” meets “Twilight” on the way to “Weekend at Bernie’s.” The plot is layered but not overly complicated. The characters are whimsical with a side of grit. The dialogue is witty. Even the death theme is more funny than dark. The Dead Prince is an innovative, lyrical lark.
