A new stage adaptation of BAFTA nominated Channel 4 comedy The Windsors is coming to the West End this Summer.
Bert Tyler-Moore and George Jeffrie have adapted their acclaimed TV comedy into a new stage play, titled The Windsors: Endgame.
The play opens at the Prince of Wales Theatre on 2 August.
Many of the cast of the TV version are believed to have signed up for the stage adaptation, including Harry Enfield reviving his TV role of Prince Charles. More casting details are to be announced.
Pre-show publicity for the show promises – like all good soap operas – a story of intergenerational conflict, with Wills challenging his father for the crown and Camilla determined to see him off and rule the land with an iron fist. Wills needs Harry and Meghan’s help if he’s ever going to triumph – but will they come back from California and their authentic life with their rescue chickens? And how will Beatrice and Eugenie ever clear their father, Prince Andrew’s name?
There will also be songs, sword fights and snogging competitions!
The Windsors: Endgame is directed by Michael Fentiman (Amelie), with set design by Madeleine Girling, lighting design by Jack Knowles, sound by George Dennis, music by Felix Hagan and casting by Stuart Burt CDG.
One half of the writing team for the show, comedy writer George Jeffrie, sadly passed away in September 2020. Bert and George were in a writing partnership for a number of years, writing for countless entertainment shows, and creating and writing three series: The Windsors, Pete Versus Life starring Rafe Spall, and Star Stories, which won a British Comedy Award and was twice BAFTA nominated.
The Windsors: Endgame is produced by Tristan Baker and Charlie Parsons for Runaway Entertainment and Isobel David. The Windsors television series was produced by Noho Film & Television.
The show will run as a limited season until The Book of Mormon returns to the Prince of Wales.
