The critically acclaimed smash hit of Edinburgh 2012, Maurice’s Jubilee is the hilariously funny and moving tale of an ordinary man’s enduring commitment to a dream, and of a love triangle with a regal twist.
Maurice’s Jubilee is a tender look at life and love in a marriage where Helena has been the Queen of Maurice’s heart for sixty years. But a distant memory of Her Majesty The Queen still sparkles brightly in this retired jeweller’s mind. Entrusted a lifetime ago with the Crown Jewels and a royal pledge, Maurice insists that his ninetieth birthday will be one worth waiting for.
Maurice’s Jubilee currentlystars Olivier award winner Julian Glover (The Empire Strikes Back, Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade and For Your Eyes Only and currently in Game Of Thrones), Sheila Reid* (star of the double award winning TV series Benidorm , guest star in Call The Midwife Christmas special) and Olivier Award winner Nichola McAuliffe (Lady In The Van (UK tour), Coronation Street, Surgical Spirit) in her unmissable self-penned new comedy.
*N.B. From 26th March Gay Soper (theatre credits include Lend Me A Tenor, Sunday in the Park with George and Star Quality (UK tour)) will takeover the role of Helena.
