WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

From Richard II's solilquy at Pomfret Castle through to Malory's Morte d'Arthur, by way of Victoria's naively moving description of her own coronation and a fifteen year old Jane Austen's partial, prejudiced and ignorant historian's entertaining account of the monarchy from Henry IV to Charles I, the production gives a human face, often in their own words and usually comedic, to the changing role of the monarchy through the ages in an illuminating and beguiling way.
