When good King Kartoffelpuffen gives up his kingdom to his oldest son Tater and marries off his other children for peace (and for political gain), Prince Trevor, his youngest son, trades places with his manservant Grumbelino in order to escape his fate and find his true love, Toby the stable boy.


Meanwhile, will Princess Lana find love with King Soignée of the Blind Sybarites, or will she continue pining for Geoffrey, her lost love?


Will Grumbelino make friends with his new wife Queen Bluebella of Chryselephantinople and her harem of eunuchs, or will he foolishly poke his nose into the Forbidden Ballroom?
Can anyone keep King Tater from starting a new war and destroying all their Kingdoms?


 

Prince Trevor is a satire of Contemporary Politics, reflected in the Magic Mirror of Fairy Tales injected with 42 ccs of Shakespearean Verse, and dissected through the Ridiculous Theatrical style of Charles Ludlam.

"...the adjectives I'd use to describe Prince Trevor are sweet and earnest, and I mean neither to be at all pejorative. Pflaster has created a modern fairy tale with a moral that is worthwhile and timely - that one person's actions can make a difference."
