The Prince and The Pauper
Trevecca Theatre’s 2021-22 season theme, Season 180°, is about trading places. It’s about walking in someone else’s shoes. A transposition of contrasting lives, leading protagonists to experience, as never before, the jarring realities of the opposing point of view. And, so, the shows this season, each in their own unique way, focus on adaptations of stories where characters’ lives are flipped and understanding is opened!
February will feature The Prince and The Pauper.
Enjoy an adaptation of Mark Twain’s The Prince and the Pauper written by Jemma Kennedy for the Unicorn Theatre, the leading professional children’s theatre in the UK.
Stories of role reversal, doppelgängers, and mistaken identities are as old as Ancient Greek and Roman comedies. Shakespeare’s comedies relied heavily on these devices. So, it should be no surprise, then, that legendary humorist Mark Twain would put his own famous twist on this age-old idea which, in turn, has fueled assorted imitations in literature, film, and television over the past century. Ideal for the whole family, this playful new
adaptation by Jemma Kennedy begins to upend what you think you know about the world and each other!
