The Duchess: AKA Wallis Simpson

MGA 2019 Spring Season

Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th May at 7pm

Presented by our graduating Acting course students at the Rose Theatre as part of the 2019 Spring Season.

The Duchess enters the audacious world of Wallis Simpson – from the filth of Shanghai brothels to the regal splendour of Buckingham Palace – shedding light on the infamous woman for whom King Edward VIII would eventually abdicate his throne. In this adult Alice in Wonderland, Wallis’s personified jewels, her Royal Court chorus, and the royal family themselves dance us through the personal, the political and the fabulist, giving us a glimpse at the life of the controversial woman who diverted the course of the twentieth century.

Suitable for ages 14+

Full Price – £15.00
Concessions – £12.50 ( OAP & <15yrs)
