The Queen, Shakespeare and Me

''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 forging peace processes, her secret passion for motorbikes . with a surprise 'coming out' at 96. "Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety"

You are regally commanded to join Her Majesty for tea, free Battenburg cake & Duchy Original biscuits, and a gracious glimpse into hitherto unseen aspects of her life - with audience participation, SingalongaLiz, some Shakespeare and a quiz. We may mourn her passing and the end of an era, but HM would not have wished us to be miserable. Don''t miss the UK's answer to Mrs Maisel! Handbag - the regal older lady's Fleabag! ★★★ "A solid, warm performance with delightfully silly moments" The Reviews Hub
