"A totally ridiculous Spanish-Language soap opera set in a British cul-de-sac", written by and starring acclaimed comedian Emma Sidi, and directed by award winning directorial duo Big Red Button.

Adapted from Sidi's 2016 critically acclaimed sell-out Edinburgh Fringe show Telenovela, La Princesa de Woking is a short-form Spanish-language web series which combines the velvety, 80s golden era of the telenovela aesthetic of flimsy sets and soft focus melodrama, with the stark British reality of Boots meal deals, NHS waiting times, passionate Brexit views and unimpressive cul-de-sac exterior shots.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
