An Interview with Emma Cunniffe and Romola Garai
Following a sold out run at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, Helen Edmundson's fascinating play about one of Britain's lesser known rulers transferred to the Theatre Royal Haymarket this June. Emma Cunniffe (Great Expectations, The Crucible), is the titular Queen Anne, a monarch torn between her duty and the plans of her persuasive and manipulative best friend Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough, played by Romola Garai (Atonement, The Hour). We grabbed five minutes with the ladies to talk about the production.

REVIEW: Queen Anne (in exactly 250 words)
Queen Anne is a gripping, beautifully written piece of theatre – a standard, brilliant RSC historical drama. Whilst the play is fairly complex (you have to concentrate to pick up on all the sinews of the story), there is a good amount of satire injected into the performance, so you don't get bogged down. Add a few well-placed, lively songs, and you're left with a production that is tense and full of depth, but also continuously engaging.
