George is a king in waiting. Kept to the wings and given no role by his pious, over-controlling and distant father he turns to A life of hedonism. Cavorting, women, building, gambling, driving, drink and laudanum all become close to his heart,
As he moves to his next project, his Brighton Pavilion, he is forced to change the course of a hidden river that runs through the centre of the town. Unbeknownst to him, the ancient river has its allies in the underworld, and George finds himself caught up in adventures, that his father considers unholy, in a bid to find out what wisdom his own unbidden children have to tell him.
George IV, The Prince Regent, was often painted as a two dimensional fool. He may have been a fool, but which of us are not.
a must-see .. his performance is very accomplished, bringing to life the showman for a 21st century audience. This is a royally good show, created by someone who clearly loves the city of the current and the past in equal parts. The Brighton Argus. May 2013.
