The Crown – Live! A Netflix parody by Daniel Clarkson

Two actors rediscover how Elizabeth Windsor became Queen Elizabeth II (and recreate the resplendent Netflix show) in 80 minutes of frenetic hat-passing, period accents and corgi impressions.

A perfect treat for both fans of The Crown and for those wondering what all the fuss is about! This regal royal comedy comes from the pen of parodic mastermind Daniel Clarkson, co-creator of Olivier Award nominee Potted Potter, which has played three sell-out seasons at Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre.

Having been cruelly overlooked for her dream role as Queen Elizabeth in blockbuster series The Crown, budding starlet and number one fan of all things royal, Beth brings her own take on the epic story of the Royal Family to the stage instead… with her agent Stanley coerced into playing (almost) all the other roles – from Prince Philip to Princess Margaret, and all the commoners in between.

Originally staged in 2019, this updated version toured the USA in 2022, celebrating the memory of the Queen and Prince Philip’s historic reign.
