The Crown Dual to premiere at the King's Head Theatre

Crown Dual

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

THE Crown Dual, a new comedy from parodic mastermind Daniel Clarkson, co-creator of Olivier Award-nominated hit shows Potted Potter and Potted Panto, will receive its world premiere at the King’s Head Theatre.

Directed by Owen Lewis (an Olivier Award nominee for Morecambe and Wise homage Eric and Little Ern), it will run from Tuesday, March 12 to Saturday, April 6, 2019. There will also be two exclusive work in progress performances on January 27 and February 24 with all seats at £10.

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!

In this world premiere at the King’s Head Theatre, 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.

Casting has yet to be announced.
