The Sleeping Prince


Terence Rattigan

Directed by William Keil

15th - 18th February, 1967
Champagne Gala Performance, Friday 17th February

Mary Morgan, a deceptively dizzy American chorus girl, catches the eye of Charles, prince regent of Carpathia. The prince arranges for her to attend an "intimate supper" at his hotel suite. Though she successfully wards off Charles' advances, she drinks too much bubbly and ends up falling asleep. Comes the dawn, and Prince Charles is anxious to show the awkward her the door. She, however, has fallen in love with the prince, and sticks around long enough to upset a plan to overthrow the Carpathian throne, and to patch up a feud between Charles and his son Nicholas.
