Shock play ‘to feature Prince George character coming out as gay’ | Entertainment

Date:

Prince George is said to be the subject of an upcoming play that will feature a plot about the 10-year-old coming out of the closet.

Broadway playwright and Hollywood producer Jeremy O Harris, 34 – who has worked on controversial theatre production ‘Slave Play’ and HBO’s teen drama shocker ‘Euphoria’ – has founded a production company, and Page Six is reporting one of his first projects will imagine a “not-very distant future in which Prince George has just come out of the closet”.

The planned production’s title apparently includes the word ‘Prince’ and a gay slur that is uncensored in the alleged play plans.

It’s reportedly been written by author Jordan Tannahill, 35, a Canadian who wrote erotic novel ‘The Listeners’, which is currently being adapted into a BBC series starring 41-year-old actress Rebecca Hall.

George’s sexuality has been used as a device by writers before, with the youngster – who is second in line to the British throne – becoming a long-running Instagram character from ‘Family Guy’ writer Gary Janetti.

He reimagined the schoolboy as a catty royal, with the character developed into the HBO animated series ‘The Prince’.

A UK production of Jeremy O Harris’ ‘Slave Play’ is set to run in the UK at the Noël Coward Theatre, London, starring 37-year-old ‘Game of Thrones’ actor Kit Harington.

News of the upcoming play comes as Prince George, his sister Princess Charlotte, eight, and brother Prince Louis, five, cope with their mum Catherine, Princess of Wales’ cancer treatment fight.

She revealed on Friday (22.03.24) she was having preventative chemotherapy after doctors detected cancer in her body following major abdominal surgery.

Catherine underwent the procedure in January, which left her hospitalised for two weeks.

Her time out of the public spotlight sparked a wave of conspiracy theories about her health and whereabouts – which increased when she released a photo to mark Mother’s Day, which she later admitted she had clumsily edited.
