HILARIOUS NEW PARODY The Crown Dual: Post-show Q&A with cast and creatives @ Wilton's Music Hall
Sep 3 @ 7:45 pm – 10:00 pm
The Crown Dual runs at London's Wilton's Music Hall 3-14 September 2019

The Crown Dual runs at London’s Wilton’s Music Hall 3-14 September 2019

Having been cruelly overlooked for her dream role as Queen Elizabeth in blockbuster TV 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!

“This happy & glorious parody of the Netflix series reminds us what theatre is all about” – ★★★★ Dominic Cavendish, Daily Telegraph

“Inventive, fun parody skilfully combining play-that-goes-wrong antics with a potted history of the royals” – ★★★★ Mark Lawson, The Guardian

After premiering at the King’s Head in March and a hit run at Edinburgh Fringe, The Crown Dual returns to London by popular demand for a run at Wilton’s Music Hall.

Two actors – Rosie Holt and Brendan Murphy – 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.

“Rib-achingly hilarious parody of the Netflix classic. This is a show for everyone. It is, quite simply, a royally good night out” – ★★★★★ Theatre Weekly

“One simply does not hear this level of laughter in a theatre very often – &, for that gift, I bow my head to everyone involved in this Crown inspired caper” – ★★★★ Broadway World

The Crown Dual is a new comedy from the pen of parodic mastermind Daniel Clarkson, co-creator of Olivier Award-nominated hit shows Potted Potter and Potted Panto, and reunites him with director Owen Lewis, after their 2017 success with King Kong A Comedy (including a highly memorable post-show Q&A chaired by yours truly!).

After the 7.30pm performance of The Crown Dual on Tuesday 3 September 2019, I’ll be joined by cast and creatives. Any questions? Join us!
