Two actors reimagine the story of how Elizabeth Windsor became Queen Elizabeth II (and recreate two resplendent Netflix series) in 70 minutes of frenetic hat-passing, period accents and corgi impressions. A right royal treat for both fans of the show keenly waiting for the third series – and for those wondering what all the fuss is about!
This new comedy premiered in a sell-out run at the King’s Head Theatre, winning rave national press reviews, and returns to London for two weeks only after a smash Edinburgh Fringe run.
Having been cruelly overlooked for her dream role as Queen Elizabeth in blockbuster series The Crown, budding starlet Beth brings her own take on the epic story of the Royal Family to the stage instead… with her agent Stanley coerced into playing (almost) all the other roles – from Prince Philip to Princess Margaret, and all the commoners in between.
The Crown Dual comes from the pen of parodic mastermind Daniel Clarkson, co-creator of Olivier Award-nominated hit shows Potted Potter and Potted Panto, and is directed by Owen Lewis, also an Olivier Award-nominee for Morecambe and Wise homage Eric and Little Ern.
