The old saying, The Show Must Go On, came true for Edinburgh writer Robin Mitchell when a key cast member dropped out of his Edinburgh Festival Fringe play Princess Pumpalot: The Radio Show – Live on Stage! due to illness with only 48 hours until the opening show.
Several attempts were made to secure another actor to take the part in the play at Sweet Venues but to no avail, so Robin stepped onto the boards to save the day.
Princess Pumpalot didn't begin life on the stage: she was born in the pages of a top-selling book of the same name written by Robin Mitchell. If you'd like to see where it all began, check out The Story So Far (by Robin Mitchell himself) in Palace News. Signed copies of the original book are available from The Cadies & Witchery Tours.
