About the Play
Miranda’s revels now are ending, but island life looks such fun! Thirty five years after Miranda and her father Prospero left their island at the end of The Tempest, the Queen of Naples is about to make her Silver Jubilee Queen’s speech. However all is not as it seems, and neither is she……
“An entertaining and thought-provoking production. The writing and performance is excellently pitched in its wry humour”
“A tour de force performance beautifully written by the performer. ★★★★"
Stage Talk Magazine
If The Tempest is the main course then The Queen's Speech is the perfect desert. A fantastic way to finish off your magical experience of one of Shakespeare's best-loved works in the stunning surrounds of one of the UK's most incredible venues.
Bard Heads takes an updated look at some well-loved characters from six of Shakespeare’s most popular plays and imagines what might have happened next. Each 50 minute one man/woman show is full of laughter, tears and quite a few surprises. Two shows make up one evening’s entertainment. You will not need to know the parent play or even like Shakespeare to have a good night out! Please note it is not suitable for children under 12.
