'I have lived and worked in Hull and East Yorkshire since 1984 and it is well known for many things, not all of them laudable, but what is perhaps less well known is that region is incredibly flat and would be vulnerable to flooding should the ice-caps melt at any significant rate'.

John Godber's satirical play takes a look at what will happen when climate change finally tightens its grip on the lowlands. Set on the pitches of the rundown Beech Hill Bowling club, we watch across a period of twenty years as the environment disintegrates, and the Yorkshire landscape, both physical and social, is irreparably altered.

Crown Prince was first performed by Hull Truck Theatre Company in May 2007 at Spring Street Theatre, Hull.
