Christabel's Anarchist

By Patricia Hannah.

In the summer of 1876, Prince Peter Kropotkin escaped from imprisonment in St Petersburg, and for a few weeks he rented a room in Edinburgh under a false name.

But what happened when the Russian anarchist prince met his Scottish Presbyterian landlady?

A play that imagines a love story with no kissing, a comedy with secret policemen, and a tragedy with tea and shortbread.
