30TH JUNE-30TH SEPTEMBER 2017
Design by Hannah Clark.
Following a critically acclaimed, sold-out season at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in 2015-16, the Royal Shakespeare Company production of QUEEN ANNE transferred to the West End this Summer. All Scene All Props worked with Set & Costumer designer Hannah Clark on the set for QUEEN ANNE.
Emma Cunniffe returns as Queen Anne and is joined by Romola Garai as Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough in Helen Edmundson's gripping play that explores the life of one of England's little known sovereigns who is torn between friendship and duty. They will be joined by Jonathan Christie as Arthur Maynwarning, Daisy Ashford as Lady Clarendon, Richard Hope as Sydney Godolphin, Beth Park as Abigail Hill, Carl Prekopp as Daneil Defoe, Hywel Morgan as Prince George, James Garnon as Robert Harley and Michael Fenton-Stevens as Dr John Radcliffe.
QUEEN ANNE is directed by Natalie Abrahami and is presented by TRH Productions, Scott Landis and Tulchin Bartner Productions. The play will run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket for a strictly limited thirteen week season from Friday 30th June 2017 to Saturday 30th September with Press Night on Monday 10th July 2017.
