The Queen and I

Overview

In the not-too-distant future, a radical government has come to power in Great Britain and the Royal family has been moved…to a housing estate in Leicester. For the first time, the Royals have to live as ordinary people and they find the experience baffling and frightening, but ultimately enriching. Satire on the failings of the Welfare State, the pretensions, expectations and personal foibles of the Royal family; warm-hearted and affectionate comedy concerning the Royals’ attempts to come to terms with their new situation; moments of gentle irony alternating with pure farce: all these, and more, are facets of this many-layered and superbly entertaining fantasy.
