Battle Royal

Battle RoyalT0866788393
1795: England is at war with France, women are seen but not heard, and the Prince Regent, a man with 'an undeserved reputation for enjoying the amusements of his position whilst not embracing the duties', is under pressure to marry and produce an heir. Eighteen years later: the influence of the French revolution is being felt throughout the world, the tempestuous marriage of George IV and the woman he reluctantly married has reached crisis point and, in an ironic twist, Caroline his outspoken wife, has become a figurehead for the anti-monarchists. Nick Stafford's witty new play charts a fascinating chapter in the history of the British monarchy - full of scandals, press intrusion, illicit affairs, overspending and political meddling.
