January 2019 sees another exciting adaptation of a classic tale. Following the success of Around the World in 80 Days, Eileen Ryan has turned the novel The Prisoner of Zenda into a compelling stage play.
When English gentleman Rudolf Rassendyll travels to the kingdom of Ruritania to watch the coronation of the new king, he little expects to be drawn into a dastardly plot hatched by the king’s half brother, Duke Michael. In the ensuing adventure, Rassendyll finds himself thrown into the company of swashbuckling heroes, scheming villains and a striking femme fatale. Enjoying the trappings of life in the royal palace and the company of the beautiful Princess Flavia, will Rassendyll do the honourable thing and give up both in order to put the rightful king of Ruritania on the throne?
