Richly textured, passionate and enormously affecting. Beautiful.  (The Times)

“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 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. 

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, including the critically-acclaimed Black Men Walking

“We are thrilled to welcome the critically-acclaimed Eclipse Theatre. With
writer-director team Dawn Walton and Chinonyerem Odimba, story-telling does not get much better than this.”


Laura Elliot
Programme Director
