“£5000 to keep silent? Those stupid babyish letters!? Father has agreed to pay her off.”

George is a king in waiting. Kept to the wings and given no role by his pious, over-controlling father, he turns to a life of hedonism whereupon building borrowing, cavorting, grabbing pussies, paying off women, gambling,  drink and laudanum ... all become close to his heart.

Once on the throne... nothing changes. Echos down through the ages of the Boris, the Prince Andrew, the Trump of his time?

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 is not.

 “.... a great performer, clever, funny. A tour de force of a performance!” Sara Clifford, Playwright
