The Great Harlot and the Beast

A marionette theatre prince manages to entertain his crowd of children during the daytime. As night falls, the seats of the puppet theatre fill up with adults wanting their money’s worth of entertainment. Bursting with confidence, the prince ups his charm and confidence as he plays a second round as the fairytale prince to the best of his abilities. The audience is not amused, and the old entertainment machine takes over; rusty gears start turning, loose strings tighten; the prince is forced through a cavalcade of immoralities in an attempt to satisfy the demands of the audience.
