'We’ve been in revolution since I was born. I never had to die before'. At 25 years old, the brilliant but reckless Bonnie Prince Charlie rebelled in a blaze of glory. By the time he was 26 his dreams lay in ruins and he was fleeing for his life. Amidst the chaos of war and in the face of defeat, the Young Pretender is forced to confront the moment when idealism dies and realism sets in. The flawed Prince is brought to life vividly in this unflinching look at the nature of rebellion. Fringe First 2010 winner Nabokov returns.
