Robin Mitchell

Robin Mitchell as Cookie Crumble

When the actor originally cast for the role of Cookie Crumble fell ill with just days to go before the 2016 show opened, the Princess's creator (and show producer) Robin Mitchell gamely stepped in. He already knew the script quite well (as he wrote it) and is no stranger to public performance, so he was a natural fit! Robin so enjoyed appearing in the 2016 show he's back at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe as Cookie Crumble in Princess Pumpalot: The Quest for the Purple Super-Farting Bean.
