“My name is Phyllis Princess James. I will wear this crown every day. I will never take it off even when I am asleep.” 

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 Bristol as Black British Civil Rights 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.
