CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020. Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)

Details

An English mistress. A foreign queen. A difficult balance. Roles chosen by their King, but women who won't be defined by them. It's 1734 and you're invited to an exclusive party at Kensington Palace to celebrate King George II's birthday. Underneath the seemingly joyful occasion is an undercurrent of tension between Queen Caroline and her husband's mistress, Henrietta Howard, who is desperate to leave and start a new life. Delving into the world of political intrigue, court games, high drama, scandalous gossip and smiling through gritted teeth, this immersive experience presents two separate journeys highlighting the stories of these brilliant women who might have otherwise been lost in the shadow of their king. Two women. Two separate routes. Two stories. One night. Which story will you discover? Henrietta, the Norfolk orphan who married a drunkard, lost everything and then ascended to be Lady of the Bedchamber - think you know what a mistress is? Think again. Queen Caroline, the intellectual changing the face of court, defining what a woman can and should be, and ruling her husband with just the right amount of advice and leadership. But can the queen rise above the constraints of her time and class? With modern twists throughout, this limited theatrical run will explore how these women made their own mark on their world and ours.
