Anna Chatterton in  Princess

Anna Chatterton in Princess


Artword Artbar, Hamilton November 17-27 

Hammertheatre is pleased to announce the premiere of Sky Gilbert’s new play Princess, staring Anna Chatterton and Ralph Small. Playing at the Artword Artbar November 17-27. Thurday- Saturday 8:00pm and Sunday matinee at 2:00pm. This one act play examines the façade of princess culture in todays society through the eyes of a very complicated young woman.

Mary Beth meets her father in a little cafe. We learn that she has cancer, and that her father neglected her is a child. But is that all the truth? Or are there other truths? As the confrontation grows deeper we learn some troubling things about the young woman, and we also learn that things are not quite what they seem. Mary Beth is an extreme young woman, but maybe her obsessions are not that different from someone you know. Not every little girl can be a princess, and not every little girl can be perfectly happy.

 Can you come to terms with that? With life?
