LEAVING PRINCE CHARMING is a one-woman show written and performed by Lara Repko with Direction & Development by Jessica Lynn Johnson that premiered in the largest solo theatre festival on the West Coast, Whitefire Theatre's SOLOFEST 2019.

21-year-old Lara is looking for love. One day she stumbles (or rather, swipes) upon a handsome young man with a mop of dark hair and a goofy grin. Lara grows bewitched as he treats her like royalty.

But one day, he doesn't. Suddenly, the magic begins to fade and Lara wonders if her prince is really a frog. As Lara falls deeper under his spell, she realizes that this fairytale isn't what she thought it would be. Will this beauty stay with the beast? Or can she break the spell by midnight?

Follow an unorthodox fairy godmother as she travels down the rabbit hole of relationship abuse, manipulation, and trauma bonding. This is a love story, but not the kind you're expecting.

A one-woman serio-comedy told through multimedia and fifteen unique characters, "Leaving Prince Charming" is an unconventional fairytale of one damsel's journey to a different kind of Happily Ever After. 


“This is a one-woman show that I’ll remember for a very long time. Lara does the one thing that guarantees a happy ending: [she] rescues herself, the ultimate in female empowerment.”
