Theatre Royal Haymarket

Queen Anne

The enthralling true story of power and betrayal
A new play by Helen Edmundson

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.

Queen Anne is directed by Natalie Abrahami (Happy Days) and plays for a strictly limited thirteen week season presented by TRH Productions, Scott Landis and Tulchin Bartner Productions.

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.
