    About

    It is in a way a fairy tale about monarchy in the modern world and even though it presents the major British premiers, from Winston Churchill to David Cameron, it is theatre about politicians and everyday politics and all its attendant gimmicks, juxtaposed with a certain timeless archaic principle of control over the democratic government.

    We will be presenting the production under the auspices of Her Excellency Jan Thompson OBE, HM Ambassador of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to the Czech Republic.
