A majestic new comedy by award-winning TV and film writer John Goldsmith
From award-winning film and TV writer John Goldsmith (Victoria and Albert) comes this witty and irreverent new comedy, starring Charlie Condou (Coronation Street, Unforgotten, Nathan Barley) and Mary Roscoe (Ted Lasso, Unrelated).
The Throne is booking from 2022 at Charing Cross Theatre, London.
What is The Throne about?
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is in a spot of bother. Whilst on a school visit, and in need of a Royal ‘We’, she has become trapped in a portaloo with Derek, the Head of Science and a raging anti-monarchist. To make matters worse, this temporary ‘throne’ has been rigged with explosives by terrorists, and any attempt to escape will set it off.
With no way to contact the outside world, the Queen and Derek must rely on each other as they wait anxiously to discover their fate. Will these two opposites be able to find some common ground? Will the flush hold up? And most important of all: will Derek discover if she really keeps marmalade sandwiches in that handbag?
