Queen Anne

The Royal Shakespeare Company brings its critically-acclaimed production of Queen Anne to the West End following a sell-out run in Stratford-upon-Avon.

A new play by Helen Edmundson (The Clearing, The Heresy of Love), Queen Anne tells the story of one of England’s lesser-known royals and her close relationship with childhood friend Sarah, the Duchess of Marlborough. William III is on the throne, England is facing war and Princess Anne is on the verge of being queen. As those around her fight for influence, Anne must decide whether even her closest confidante can be trusted.

A beautifully nuanced production, Queen Anne is directed by Natalie Abrahami (Happy Days) and stars Emma Cunniffe (Tales from Hollywood, Proof) as Anne and Romola Garai (Suffragette, Atonement) as Sarah.

Sparkling with powerful moments, this striking new play takes a compelling look at love turned sour. Coming to London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket for a strictly limited 13-week run, book your tickets to the RSC’s Queen Anne today!

  • Great historical play

    16 August 2017

    This was a great play - brilliantly acted by the two female leads and the ensemble. A very interesting period of history excellently brought to life and the relationship between Queen Anne and Sarah Churchill was vividly brought to life.

  • Powerful and accurate history play

    15 August 2017

    Last night I saw the powerful, and extremely well acted, history play, the Royal Shakespeare Company production of Queen Anne. The work centered on the intense relationship between Queen Anne and Sarah Churchill, First Duchess of Marlborough. Initially, they were very close as Sarah and her husband, John, guided many of Anne's actions. When Anne came more into her own and began to make decisions herself, Sarah reacted negatively. Finally, she went too far and was thrown out of Court. This happened despite the fact that her husband, The first Duke of Marlborough and a capable soldier, led England to some of its greatest victories over the French including the Battle of Blenheim. The Churchills were rewarded with Blenheim Place outside Oxford, that I visited earlier. The palace was where Winston Churchill spent much of his boyhood. It was interesting to learn the back story not reported on that site. Eventually, both Sarah and John had to flee to Europe and did not return to complete the palace until after Anne's death. John died first and Sarah completed it in its grandeur to honor him and her ambition, but the excess was controversial in its day. Sarah's diary gave Anne a bad reputation that lasted for years but more recent historians have recognized Anne's contribution to the rise of prosperity and the arts that occurred during her reign. I fact checked every detail in the Wikipedia and its seems that all the side plots and main events are completely accurate.
