Show Description:
In this hysterical tweaking of the fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea, the kingdom is an unhappy one. Queen Aggravain has ruled that none may marry until her son, Prince Dauntless marries a princess of Royal blood. However, she has managed to sabotage every princess that comes along. When Sir Harry and Lady Larken learn that they are going to be parents, wed or not, Sir Harry goes off to the swamps and brings back an ungainly, brash Princess Winnifred, ("Fred" to her friends). The queen is horrified and immediately begins to scheme. However Winnifred, with some help from Sir Harry, the King, and the Jester, isn't going to be quite so easy to get rid of.
