Racism, identity, innocence, humanity - even the infamous circle of life - no stone is left unturned in "Princess Freckles and the Forever Kingdom"; coming to the Whitefire Theatre's Solofest on January 13 2017.|
An autobiographical solo seri-comedy about innocence, forgiveness and the journey between the two, "Princess Freckles and the Forever Kingdom" follows one family through three generations of life in Southern Africa; the colour and beauty of fairytale childhoods wrapped in mud baths and elephant rides, and the chilling realization that not every forever is a happily ever after.
Written and performed by South African actress Amy Letcher (Black Sails, Blood Drive), and directed by Jessica Lynn Johnson (awarded "Best National Solo Artist" by the Dialogue One Festival), "Princess Freckles and the Forever Kingdom" invites the audience into the magic and mysticism of the African countryside, even as it opens one family's "that thing we'll never talk about again" box, and dares the audience to look inside.
Returning to Los Angeles in January, this is one show that audiences won't want to miss! In the words of Los Angeleno musician Adrian Bourgeois; "I cannot remember too many times that I've been this moved and blown away by such a raw and emotionally honest performance.You can bet I'll be dragging everyone I know to go see Princess Freckles [;and the Forever Kingdom];."
