An extravagant and inspired epic, The Duchess takes us into a wonderland where Kings and Queens dance the Black Bottom, Faerie creatures demand blood, and Empires are given up for love.

The play tells the story of the woman for whom Edward VIII abdicated his throne, Wallis Simpson. It travels into the emotional centre of a plain, brash, sexual woman, who collapsed only when cocktails ran out – a woman destined to become the Yoko Ono of her time. Irreverent and ribald, this mostly true drama combines straightforward narrative with magic realism.

“You have no idea how hard it is to live out a great romance!” – Wallis Simpson.
