Home  /  Events  /  Art  /  The Prisoner of Zenda

Rudolph Rassendyll is twenty-nine, and he’s done very little with his life. His one fascination is the Ruritanian royal family, to which he is dubiously related after a scandalous affair between the visiting Prince Rudolph III and Rassendyll’s ancestor, the Countess Amelia.

He resolves to visit Ruritania, on the eve of the new king’s coronation. While walking in the forests around Zenda, he meets the king and his entourage. The king and he are physically identical and what follows as a result of this accident of birth will change Rudolph’s life forever, forcing him to choose between his moral duty and his heart…

Now in its 6th year, Common Ground follow up their hit touring productions of The Signalman and The Perils of Pinocchio with this rollicking good tale!
