“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.

We’re looking for members of the local community in and around Hull to be part of the community chorus and play an important part in the final production. Click here to find out more about how you can get involved.
