Does the Queen Wear Bloomers or a Thong?
What fun activities can you delight your kids with over the summer holidays? Sometimes it can be a hassle trying to find loads of different places to take them which is why the Southbank Centre makes such a great venue. All your entertainment in one place. Two great shows that they can enjoy include The Man Who Planted Trees and The Queen's Knickers.
The Crown Jewels are priceless heirlooms, and the Queen would be most upset if they were ever stolen. But there is something even more precious than that; something that the Queen wouldn't know what to do without if they got lost. Her knickers.
You may laugh, but just think how you would feel if you lost your underwear. What would you do, and how embarrassing would that be?
That is why the protection of the Queen's particulars is deemed of the utmost importance. The job falls upon the Queen's loyal maid, Dilys, who diligently keeps them under lock and key. But one day the unmentionable happens. The unmentionables go missing.
The last time the Queen's Knickers was shown at Southbank, it was a sell-out performance. Now the updated comedy is making a come back on the 6th of August, and playing until the 20th August. Tickets are £12.
The Man Who Planted Trees is a production by Puppet State. The company is based in Edinburgh, but is currently touring the UK & Ireland in their latest show. The Man Who Planted Trees is a multi-sensory theatrical adaptation of a short story by the French author, Jean Giono. It is an environmental tale about a shepherd who tries to bring a barren valley back to life. The show runs between the 22nd August - 1st September and costs £12.
