I was thinking about the settings and styles that could be applied to Dirty Princesses tonight and I realised that it could be used for a straight-up drama about a group of sisters leaving home and dealing with their mother. The Retinue becomes their group of friends and their ‘Perilous Quest’ is surviving college or getting a job. It’s interesting to see where the concept can get taken.
That’s what led me onto the second thought. Does the name work? It started out like a little joke that then became the name. I’m somewhat used to it now and I don’t really want to change it, but… it’s a bit suggestive. The real question is, what would I change it to?
