In The Crown Dual, two actors 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. A perfect evening of hilarity for both fans of the show – and for those wondering what all the fuss is about! This new comedy comes from the pen of parodic mastermind Daniel Clarkson, co-creator of Olivier Award nominated hit shows Potted Potter and Potted Panto, and is directed by Owen Lewis, also an Olivier Award nominee for Morecambe and Wise homage Eric and Little Ern.

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

Reviews

“This happy and 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
“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 – and, for that gift, I bow my head to everyone involved in this Crown inspired caper.”
★★★★ Broadway World

“A fun and diverting night out, with deft talent, considerable charm and spot-on timing”
★★★★ Peter Brown, ActDrop

“A strong comedic duo delivers a riotous Royal Affair like you’ve never seen, packed with period accents, hat swapping and corgi impressions.”
Culture Whisperer

“Irreverent, hilarious and slapstick; the show provokes a grin that will make your mouth ache. The contemporary references, razor sharp quips and aristocratic blunders are a joy from start to finish – a ludicrously enjoyable play.”
★★★★ Gabriel Wilding, Islington Gazette

“A tightly written parody that delivers the laughs while appealing to the box-set generation”
Paul Vale, LondonReviewsTheatre

“A rip-roaringly funny two-hander. Bright and irreverent, with a generous helping of anarchy thrown in; great fun!”
Brian Penn, Everything Theatre
