The Royal Brothers
The Royal Brothers is a play by an unknown author.
The original text
Said to be a play about the two princes imprisoned in the Tower and executed by Richard III, the South African performance by pupils of a Catholic school in Cape Town. However no such text has been traced, so it may possibly have been a local adaptation made up of the relevant scenes from Shakespeare's Richard III.
