The Boy, George
Patrick Livesey and Holden Street Theatres present
ADELAIDE FRINGE 2019 REVIEWS
"★★★★★ - Livesey has created a whole world in a bedroom of plausible intrigue comingled with real issues and sharp observation, all delivered by his charismatic man-child deluded dilettante. True git! Bravo!" - The Barefoot Review
The Queen has died. The People have spoken. The Monarchy must end - and Prince George is SO not about it. He's 14, insta-famous and would literally rather die than leave the Palace. But a storm is brewing. Political unrest. A boy left alone for the very first time. Plots must be laid and this pampered-up pup isn't planning on going quietly.
The Boy, George is a queer unraveling. A tanty of Shakespearean proportions. A meltdown fit for a would-be King.
After a sell-out season at Melbourne Fringe, a nomination for Best Performance for Patrick Livesey, and winner of the NZ Tour Ready Award, Prince George is back to wreak havoc on all who dare threaten his reign.
