Set after a popular people’s rebellion, the fairy tale kingdom of East Enchantment is under new management, and it ain’t pretty. The old magical guard is out and the mob rules. This fast-paced rollicking roller coaster of a political satire shows how “life is a mess, when you’re no longer princess”. Definitely not a children’s show. (
