''The Queen, Shakespeare and Me' is an affectionate musical comedy tribute to a thoroughly modern, fully empowered female role model - a woman who headed up a country and united a commonwealth for more than 70 years, earning respect, admiration and affection from around the world. From the vantage point of her Platinum Jubilee and final year, we see how this colourful, powerful lady head of state defined the postwar era. In this show, Carole Shaw reflects on HM's long life and reveals her 'all' to her people - her undying love for her corgis, the men in her life, her singlehanded success at...

However disastrous that may be. "Hilarious... funny and touching and brilliant" - The Guardian "Mabey is thoroughly enjoyable company... the slightly deranged offspring of a menage a trois be-tween Vic Reeves, Harry Hill and Floella Benjamin" – Evening Standard "A mischievous, kooky talent" - Time Out "An absolute delight to watch... leaves you feeling a little bit dizzy and a big bit happy" - The Skinny...

HangDog is the turbulent, chaotic lovechild of Chester's sweetest-brained simpleton Jack Toop and London's youngest pensioner Jacob Lovick. They're the all-singing, never-dancing duo behind the hit show 'MUSIC', which toured in 2023 to critical acknowledgment. This is their new show.
