You are a Prince, not a pauper. And before too long the whole of England will be in your hands...
Set in a Tudor London so vibrant you can smell the potato peelings, poor Tom Canty has a chance meeting with the young heir to the throne, Prince Edward – and by pure coincidence they find they look almost identical.
Mark Twain’s classic tale of confused identities tells the story of what happens when the one is mistaken for the other: Tom Canty is forced into the world of the court and power, while Edward is cast down into a world of poverty and thieves, from which he must fight his way back to the Court.
Part traditional and part fantastical, join us this Christmas for the story you’ve heard but never seen on stage before.

Foyer Event 9 & 23 December: A Tudor shindig, delicacies and historical fun with The Princes in the Tower , composer Antony Elvin's tudor punk band!
