Pippin is the story of Prince Pippin's quest to find personal significance. The Leading Player who is blessed with the gift of magic narrates the story. Pippin traverses through the trials of war, love, and politics before finding himself out amongst the peasants - away from the wealth and privilege of royal life. He ends up falling in love with a good widow, Catherine. In the end, the Leading Player tries to convince Pippin to just commit suicide. Pippin resists and decides to spend the rest of his life with Catherine and her young son.

‘Pippin’ contains graphic images of a violent nature.  Not suitable for children.

A derelict space. Three urban cowboys. Two jaded bohemians. One woman, alone, in pain. Their lives collide and in an attempt to connect with each other, their conflicts unfold. A modern tale of love and loss set against the underground art world of London's East End.
