Queen Anne explores the life of one of England’s little-known sovereigns and her intimate friendship with her childhood confidante Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough. A timely production for turbulent political climes, the reign of Queen Anne saw the rise of the free press as well as the Act of Union between England and Scotland.
Queen Anne runs from 30 June 2017 until 30 September 2017 at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
