Rosie Holt and Brendan Murphy play the Queen and Prince Philip in this sharp parody of the hit Netflix series The Crown. Not just these two central characters but many more – including a Penguin! When other characters were needed members of the audience were recruited/pressganged. Some of the audience when I attended were themselves very funny and up to adlibbing.

Without being preachy or heavy there was a subversive undercurrent to the show which I enjoyed.

The Crown Dual had me laughing a lot. It is incredibly well-written with many different forms of humour woven into it including visual. If you just feel like having fun this a great show to see.
