Provocative playwright Jeremy O. Harris developing controversial new project based on royal family

With past projects including “Slave Play” and HBO’s “Euphoria,” Broadway playwright and Hollywood producer Jeremy O. Harris has certainly made it clear that he’s not afraid of a provocative concept.

Even so, one of the thespian superstar’s upcoming pieces seems likely to rattle the cutlery at dinner parties across Brooklyn.

Page Six has learned that Harris has founded a production company, and one of his first forays will be a little number called “Prince F - - - - t” (but without the dashes).

A play written by author Jordan Tannahill, it imagines “a not-very distant future in which Prince George has just come out of the closet.”

Folks have found themselves locked in the Tower of London for less!

Canadian heavy-hitter Tannahill has also penned the novel “The Listeners,” which is currently being adapted into a BBC series starring Rebecca Hall and directed by Harris collaborator Janicza Bravo.

For some reason, the imagined sexual orientation of 10-year-old Prince George of Wales — who is second in line to the British throne — has been a fascination for some time.

TV writer Gary Janetti has a long-running Instagram character based on the young prince, reimagining him as a catty, fabulous, status obsessive, which spawned its own HBO animated series, “The Prince.”

“Prince F - - - - t” is not the only project on Harris’ slate, we’re told.

Harris recently mounted an invitation-only reading of the Will Arbery play “You Hateful Things,” starring Christian Slater, Lucas Hedges, Amandla Stenberg and John Cameron Mitchell.

He also helped shepherd the recent City Center hit, “Jelly’s Last Jam,” to Broadway.

“Jeremy is exactly the producer Broadway needs right now,” an insider told Page Six.
