North Bridge House Canonbury presents: The Queen Must Die

North Bridge House Canonbury warmly invites family, friends and members of the public to the School’s forthcoming production of THE QUEEN MUST DIE!

On the eve of Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee celebrations, a fibre-glass statue of Her Royal Highness waits in a suburban living-room in preparation for the Jubilee parade. Two factions converge on the house with the aim of vandalizing the statue – three girls who can see no other way of escaping the embarrassment of having to dance in the parade, and three lads who want to make an anti-monarchist statement. Politics, friendship, body image, Oliver Cromwell and Taylor Swift feature in our adaptation of this ingenious comedy by David Farr, originally written for the National Theatre’s Shell Connections series.

The 2003 Shell series was specially commissioned for some of the most innovative modern-day playwrights around to write inspiring plays specifically for young performers. Our talented cast have worked hard on the play as their Enrichment Programme option, making it their own contemporary masterpiece.

Join us for an evening of light-hearted entertainment on Wednesday 1st or Thursday 2nd February at 7pm. The show lasts approximately an hour.
