The hilarious royal comedy from the author of “The 39 Steps”

Performed by self-styled theatrical genius Desmond Olivier Dingle and his not always faithful sidekick Raymonda Box, Love Upon the Throne is a gleefully comic retelling of the romance, courtship and matrimonial proceedings of Charles and Diana, tastefully crammed into an evening’s entertainment for your unmitigated delight. With all the wit and farcical invention of last Spring Play Season’s “The 39 Steps”, Love Upon the Throne enjoyed a successful run at London’s Comedy Theatre, and is the perfect vehicle (or royal coach, if you like) to bring live theatre back to the Pomegranate.

“it pulls off the impossible: it is extremely funny without being offensive” Observer

“Grateful tears of laughter coursed down my cheek... Pure joy” Guardian

“The show achieves real brilliance” Daily Telegraph
