The first read through of my play was last night and the best part was that my actors had no idea how it would end! I’m so excited about this event. Hope you can come.
It’s 1933 and Ellen Hunt is broke. The vast fortune she married her deceased husband for has vanished and the lovely widow is now alone and about to lose her gorgeous mansion. What’s a daring and beautiful socialite to do? Marry off her only son, George, to a wealthy girl, of course.
Luckily a wealthy girl is available, the beautiful Lydia Ellsworth, who just so happens to be madly in love with George. With George returning from college that evening, Ellen thinks that all she needs to do is get Lydia and George alone together. But when George arrives home with a fiancee of his own, Ellen’s plans are dashed. Susan is lovely but poor, not what Ellen has in mind for her son. How will Ellen get rid of Susan and make sure George falls in love with Lydia, all while ensuring no one, not even George, discovers the Hunt family fortune is gone? It will take all of her manipulative powers to save the family from scandal and ruin. With fast paced dialogue and an ending no one would expect, “Prince Charming” will leave you laughing and believing in the power of love.
