The ensemble cast tells the story of Pippin, a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his life. To prove his loyalty to his distracted father, King Charles, Pippin goes to war. But when the prince decides to fight tyranny, Pippin kills Charles and takes over the throne. Pippin becomes king and decides that the answer to all problems is to eliminate taxes, give land to his peasants, give money to the poor, and abolish the army. Soon, Pippin is forced to revoke all his promises. As encouraged by the Leading Player, Pippin dabbles in bloody battle, licentious and lusty sexual entanglements, and savvy political maneuvers, only to discover that true happiness is more complicated than he thought. Pippin is both a humorous allegory about growing up and a dark tale of the danger of false appearances and empty promises
