JOHN SMITH, THE PRINCESS OF WALES

John Smith: Oh what the fuck, it’s all the Queen’s fault.

JOHN SMITH IS AN AUTHOMECHANIC FROM LONDON SUBURBS, DIVORCED AND IN HIS LATE THIRTIES. HE SPENDS HIS DAYS IN THE WORKSHOP AND HIS NIGHTS IN A ONE BEDROOM APARTMENT IN WHICH, TRYING TO ESCAPE FROM WHAT HE REALLY IS, STARTS TO BELIEVE HE IS THE PRINCESS OF WALES. HOWEVER, THE ROYAL ENVIRONMENT THAT HE CONSTRUCTED IS FAR FROM AN IDEAL ONE, AND THIS BRINGS HIM INTO A TRAP WHICH PROVES TO BE DIFFICULT TO EXIT.
