Princess and The Hustler
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 activists take to 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.
