Summary Jemma Kennedy's stage adaptation of Mark Twain's novel is a dynamic and fast-paced narrative of confused identities. Set in Tudor London, the poverty-stricken Tom Canty has a chance meeting with the young heir to the throne, Prince Edward; by pure coincidence, they find they look almost identical. The play tells the story of what happens when one person is mistaken for the other and what happens to them in the long-term: Tom Canty is forced into the world of the court and power, while Edward is cast down into a world of poverty and thieves, from which he must fight his way back to the court. This adaptation was first produced in 2012 at the Unicorn Theatre
