Princess and the Hustler Princess and the Hustler by Chinonyerem Odimba

"A beautifully crafted play about a family threatened by racial tensions during the 1960s."
★★★★ The Observer

Princess & The Hustler

Princess & The Hustler courtesy of

Meet Princess. A cheeky 10-year-old, with a plan to win the Weston-Super-Mare Beauty Contest. Trouble is, her mum is busy working several jobs, her brother, a budding photographer, won’t even take her picture and then – The Hustler returns.

In 1963, as Black British Civil Rights campaigners walk onto the streets, Princess finds out what it really means to be black and beautiful.

Princess & The Hustler is the second national tour born from Revolution Mix – an Eclipse movement that is spearheading the largest ever delivery of new black British stories. The first Revolution Mix story was last year’s sell-out production of Black Men Walking.
