Southbank Centre & The Egg Present: The Queen’s Knickers
‘Hilarious, witty and downright silly’ ~ Timeout
‘How refreshing to see an enjoyable piece about knickers, of all things, which is never lavatorial or grubby – just triumphantly silly’ ~ The Stage
Get your knickers in a twist with this classic comedy for wise young children. What would you do if you lost the Queen’s pants? Dilys, the Queen’s maid, is the royal custodian of Her Majesty’s ‘intimate apparel’, otherwise known as the Queen’s knickers. She guards HRH’s smalls as if they were the crown jewels. She would be mortified if anyone got a glimpse of them. But one day the knickers go missing, causing a national state of emergency and a diplomatic incident of catastrophic proportions. A celebration of the garments we all wear, but never show, this children’s classic is inventively told by two elastic actors. It’s all about knickers but it definitely won’t be pants!
Approx. 55 minutes. Suitable for ages 3+
