Peter Whelan’s epic state-of-the-nation play examines the debate over the future of the monarchy in 21st century Britain. When the heir to the throne renounces his rightful succession, his eighteen year old son must determine his own future with the monarchy seeming increasingly out of place in a scarred Britain. With the help of his brother, the young prince secretly slips away from his minders and travels around the country, searching for clues to help his dilemma. Meanwhile, the Republican movement in parliament is growing at an alarming rate, with powerful support coming from both Left and Right. In one of the most fiercely contested political debates of a generation, the Labour Government and the opposition Conservatives tackle the concerns of the people as the fate of an entire nation hangs in the balance.
