You are a Prince, not a pauper. And before too long the whole of England will be in your hands... Jemma Kennedy's stage adaptation of The Prince and the Pauper is a dynamic and fast-paced adaptation of Mark Twain's 1881 classic novel of confused identities. Set in a gritty, vibrant Tudor London, the poverty-stricken Tom Canty has a chance meeting with the young heir to the throne, Prince Edward, and ? by pure coincidence ? they find they look almost identical. The Prince and the Pauper tells the story of what happens when one person is mistaken for the other and what happens to them in the long-term: Tom Canty is forced into the world of the court and power, while Edward is cast down into a world of poverty and thieves, from which he must fight his way back to the court. First produced at the Unicorn Theatre, the UK's leading theatre for young audiences aged 2 ? 21 from the 25th November 2012 to the 13 January 2013.

By the author of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. A fascinating “coming of age” tale, complete with switched identities, national security, danger, and intrigue. Set in London during the bloody reign of King Henry VIII, it tells the story of two young boys who are identical in appearance: Tom Canty, a pauper who lives with his abusive father in Offal Court off Pudding Lane in London, and Prince Edward. Through a series of unpredictable events, these boys from different worlds meet and playfully dress in each other’s clothing—surprised to see themselves in a mirror and realize that they could easily be mistaken for the other. The real prince, dressed as the poor boy, is thrown into the street, but not before he hides the Great Seal of England in his clothing. What follows is a tale full of pathos, danger, and plot twists during which the authority of the king is threatened and the two boys are forced to adapt to the foreign world of the other. Though this is a classic of historical fiction, the famous Mark Twain spins a thriller that is both entertaining and relatable to modern readers. This book has been adapted into several major motion pictures beginning with the 1937 version starring Errol Flynn.
