Maurice's Jubilee
by Nicola McAuliffe
Directed by Denise Phillips

The night before the coronation Maurice is sent to bring the crown jewels from the palace to Westminster Abbey. Unexpectedly he meets and talks with Princess Elizabeth who promises to have tea  with him on his ninetieth birthday in her Jubilee year, should they both survive that long. The play opens with Maurice approaching his ninetieth birthday. He is dying of cancer and it is only the prospect of meeting the queen again that keeps him going.

Sounds grim but very, very funny and quite uplifting.

For most of the run, bookings will be managed using the old method that was in place before 2020.  The auditorium will be fully open, and you’ll be able to book your own seats as before.

However, we appreciate that even now some people may be nervous about being in close proximity to others, so we are also introducing Distanced Wednesday, where bookings will be taken in the same way as when we were able to open between lockdowns.  You’ll be able to book a ticket on general admission and seating will be allocated a couple of days before the performance – although you’ll be able to leave a note if you have a particular seating requirement.  Although you will not be able to choose a specific seat, this will come with a guarantee that there will be at least one empty seat all around your party.

Important Information:

The Box Office will be open at the usual times (Monday evenings and Wednesday mornings), and tickets will be available for purchase up to and including the evening of the performance.  However, for the 'Distanced Wednesdays' availability may be limited, especially closer to the evening of the performance.


Other good news is that the coffee shop and bar will be open and more of the front of house will be in use, including the upper foyer to allow people to spread out more during the interval.

Our front of house team will also be wearing face coverings when people are moving around the theatre, and we encourage you to wear yours too. 

Tuesday 14 September to Saturday 25 September at 7:30pm
