Affectionate musical comedy on the world’s longest-serving monarch, now sadly bereft of her consort of 73 years. As told by Carole Shaw, the show’s creator and star performer, this is the story of a thoroughly modern, fully empowered female role model. She is a woman heading up a country, after all.

When I was 6 years old I had a dream that Bruce Willis was my real dad, and like Bruce Willis in Death Becomes Her before me, I had to find out the truth.
