King of Hearts

Tue 3 Apr to Sat 7 Apr 2007


Princess Di, Wallis Simpson - why is it always affairs of the heart that send the Windsors into meltdown? In Alistair Beaton’s delicious new satire, love, politics and royalty collide to hilarious effect.

A handsome young heir to the throne falls for a very unsuitable girl – and finds himself at war with a panicked prime minister. Suddenly, it's not just the future of the Royal Family that's at stake, but the very identity of Britain itself.
