Queen Anne is now showing at the Theatre Royal Haymarket until 30 September!

Following a critically acclaimed, sold-out season at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Royal Shakespeare Company production of Queen Anne transfers to the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 30 June.

Emma Cunniffe (The Crucible, Great Expectations) returns as Queen Anne and is joined by Romola Garai (Suffragette, The Hour) as Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough in Helen Edmundson's (The Heresy of Love) 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, Michael Fenton-Stevens, James Garnon, Richard Hope, Hywel Morgan, Beth Park and Carl Prekopp with further casting to be announced soon. Queen Anne will be directed by Natalie Abrahami (Happy Days, Young Vic).

1702. William III is on the throne and England is on the verge of war.

Princess Anne is soon to become Queen, and her advisors vie for influence over the future monarch. Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough, a close friend with whom Anne has an intensely personal relationship, begins to exert increasing pressure as she pursues her own designs on power.

Contending with deceit and blackmail, Anne must decide where her allegiances lie, and whether to sacrifice her closest relationships for the sake of the country.

Kimberly Durham28th September

Wonderful actors, and powerful.

Jackie Thompson28th September

Really enjoyed play. Great way to update my knowledge of this period of history.

Wendy Benjamin27th September

Excellent seats in the stalls for a very reasonable price

Michael Thomas27th September

Marvellously dramatised version of the Queen, and the Tory Whig machinations. Outstanding presentation of Sarah Marlborough. Nice satirical interludes. Perhaps the superb efforts of Churchill on the continent were underplayed. Some pre-reading recommended for those less steeped in the historical backgound.

Sally Curtis26th September

Queen Anne was a wonderful portrayal of her life. I especially IIked the presentation , a worthwhile way to spend the evening

Julian Knight22nd September

An interesting story, well told, acted and presented. A fascinating study of female friendship, of pride and of power - with some relevance to contemporary events. A very professional production, we could hear what the actors were saying! Our only quibble - why was King William played by a black man? We know that William was an outsider to this country, but he's always described as tall, cold and aloof. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the performance.

Rachel Lemon14th September

Superbly acted, mostly true tale of Queen Anne and her favourites. Really enjoyed this.

Ruth Glick13th September

Play too long & too full of exposition, though its an interesting period of history which made that less annoying. Acting good, especially the two female leads. Terrible feedback noise intermittently from the speakers. A so so evening in a beautiful theatre.

Patrick Fleming12th September

Good production values. Interesting play. We were there the night one of the leads had an accident. Understudy did good job and cast coped really well.
