Blackfriars Premiere. Two love triangles dominate this beautiful, sexy, troubling, and surprising romance. Two princes and a princess act recklessly, a king rules foolishly, and a curious youth loves hopelessly. Loves lies bleeding in Beaumont and Fletcher's dazzling fairy-tale for adults, but it does ultimately heal.
