The Queen, Shakespeare and Me
  • Brighton Fringe

This colourful, powerful lady head-of-state reveals her all to her people " her undying love for her corgis, the men in her life, her success at peace-brokering, her secret passion for motorbikes... with a surprise coming out at 96. "Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety".Join the singing, dancing Queen for tea, free cake & biscuits and a gracious glimpse into unseen aspects of her life - with audience participation, Shakespeare, SingalongaLiz & a quiz. Dont miss Handbag " the regal older ladys Fleabag and the UKs answer to Mrs Maisel! We may mourn the end of an era, but HM would not have wished us to be miserable. A solid, warm performance with delightfully silly moments (The Reviews Hub)

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
