Shakespeare is dead. For real this time… Those who have nothing to say can no longer hide in his greatness. They're relegated to relics of the past, who sell his scripts as contraband, during the Shakespeare prohibition era... "To be or not to be" that was the question. Now we find ourselves asking a different question... "What now?".
King and Prince have inherited the will of those who came before them. Their hearts have been set ablaze by the idea of revolution, but even in a fictional parallel universe, the cost of revolution is steep… Faced with the same dilemmas as those who came before them, King and Prince must choose a different path, or condemn their descendants to a life that teaches them to settle for crumbs.
This is an Afro-surrealist play about Legacy, Revolution and Representation.
