Two Princes

Meredydd Barker
 
The little history that I have been taught is, I fear, a mess of deeds and names mis-remembered. For this we can blame the drunken versifiers that hide in the abbeys

Nothing much has happened to the little Welsh town of Treianto since the 12th century when a celebrated rebel Prince was hunted to his death by his brother, Prince Geraint. Nothing daunted, the Town Council has decided to erect a statue to its Prince.

A competition to find the sculptors is launched. But what did the Prince look like? How was he killed? Why was the page left holding the horse? And does any of this matter with a juicy grant cheque in the offing?

In the meantime Gwynfor tries to secure his legacy, Peter launches his political career, the sculptors Hopper and Cullen can’t pay the rent, Fin falls for a married woman, Roz is desperate to keep her family together and Eurig wishes they’d all just make up their minds…
