Squad grad James Varney will be presenting a work-in-progress performance Prince Gorge, a long-form narrative poem performed with a live band, at the Royal Exchange Theatre as part of their Co:LAB Festival. The show is being made in collaboration with collaborators Sophie Coward and El Evans.
‘HRH George of Cambridge is a holy-blooded Prince and a Queer icon. Come celebrate his glorious existence and unstoppable rise to power on his 5th birthday weekend with poetry, music, and the undying love you bear for him.
Prince Gorge is a live band and a narrative poem which sees small royal boy, Prince George of Cambridge, grow up to become a Queer performance artist and cult leader.
There will be flowers, there will be devotion, there will be literal ounces of blood.
Come weep, come laugh, come bring down the monarchy.’
