Will you be in London in late April or May? If so, you can come see new play The Glass Piano, which is premiering at The Print Room in Notting Hill. I am so excited that this weird little play is getting a world premiere, and London really feels like the perfect place for this comedy of manners.
“The Glass Piano, a new play by Alix Sobler, is based on the bizarre but true story of Princess Alexandra of Bavaria. Alexandra tiptoes carefully through the palace corridors, turning sideways to pass through doorways, terrified that at the slightest disturbance the piano would shatter inside her. Her father, King Ludwig I, can do nothing to help – until a young man comes to the palace.
Laced with dry humour and featuring evocative period design, Alix Sobler’s stylish play takes place in the 19th century House of Wittelsbach, where four characters are trapped by their situations, and prevented from fulfilling their dreams of love.”
