“This is a one-woman show that I’ll remember for a very long time…[with] diverse, edgy, humorous characters” – NOHO ARTS DISTRICT

“Leaving Prince Charming” is a one-woman show written and performed by Lara Repko with Direction & Development by Jessica Lynn Johnson.

21-year-old Lara is looking for love. One day she stumbles (or rather, swipes) upon a handsome young man with a mop of dark hair and a goofy grin. Lara grows bewitched as he treats her like royalty.

But one day, he doesn’t. Suddenly, the magic begins to fade and Lara wonders if her prince is really a frog. As Lara falls deeper under his spell, she realizes that this fairytale isn’t what she thought it would be. Will this beauty stay with the beast? Or can she break the spell by midnight?

Follow an unorthodox fairy godmother as she travels down the rabbit hole of intimate partner abuse, manipulation, and trauma bonding. This is a love story, but not the kind you’re expecting.

A one-woman serio-comedy told through multimedia and fifteen unique characters, “Leaving Prince Charming” is an unconventional fairytale of one damsel’s journey to a different kind of Happily Ever After.

Content Warning: Triggering sexual content and usage of prop gun. Not suitable for children.
