THE MALVERN THEATRE COMPANY AND THE COMPASSIONATE FRIENDS VICTORIA PRESENT
‘Crown Matrimonial’ by Royce Ryton
Set in Marlborough House, it is 1936, and the English monarchy is facing its greatest crisis in 400 years. The new king, Edward, is determined to marry the twice-divorced American, Wallis Simpson, against the wishes of the Parliament, the Church and the English people. For his mother, Queen Mary, the prospect of a king abdicating his throne is too terrible to contemplate.
Royce Ryton’s sensitive drama tells the story of the family at the very centre of the historic events – a family almost torn apart by the struggle between public duty and private love, leading up to the constitutional crisis and abdication of Edward VIII.
Invite all your family and friends and join us for a preview performance and help support the work of The Compassionate Friends Victoria.
This will be a wonderful evening and a chance to connect with those you have met through The Compassionate Friends.
Ticket prices includes a glass of sherry on arrival and a light supper with tea or coffee. All proceeds from this evening will support The Compassionate Friends Victoria Inc.
Tickets extremely limited so please call the centre to book tickets.
