The National Theatre of Brent present the full and unexpurgated romance, courtship and matrimonial proceedings of His Royal Highness Prince Charles and Diana Princess of Wales. Tastefully crammed into a single profound and unforgettable playtext.

Patrick Barlow's play Love Upon the Throne is a gleefully comic retelling of the Charles and Diana story, designed to be performed by two (male) actors.

It was first staged at the Edinburgh Festival in 1998, then at the Bush Theatre, London, and the Comedy Theatre in the West End.

Press Quotes

'The extraordinary thing about Love Upon the Throne is that it pulls off the impossible: it is extremely funny without being offensive. And this is because, beneath the jokes... it is a melancholy modern history play'

Observer

'Grateful tears of laughter coursed down my cheek... Pure joy'

Guardian

'The show achieves real brilliance'
