Background


Starring Tori Allen-Martin as Chelsea, with music by Luke Bateman (Mr Popper's Penguins), book and lyrics by Maz Evans (Who Let The Gods Out) and directed by Daniel Winder (Iris' artistic director, most recently Macbeth at St Paul's Church).


First written in 2015 as a commission by Iris Theatre's Workin Process scheme, and now freshly re-imagined, H.R.Haitch comes to the Union Theatre this May in its first fully-staged production.


Synopsis


London, 2011.


The Olympics are doomed, the East End is being gentrified for houses no-one can afford, Amy Winehouse has died, and Adele's released her second album.


It's been a tough year.


But, in a world where Kim Kardashian can't stay married for a whole TV series, love has blossomed between feisty East Ender Chelsea and dopey toff Bertie.


He's never going to win Mastermind, but he won Chelsea's heart when he boned her trout at catering college.


Its 2012 and Chelsea's future is bright.


She has a new man and there's a new progressive Prime Minister to light the days ahead (#blessed).


The media can stick their obsession with the identity of Prince Albert, the secret royal who's been in hiding for 20 years.


Bertie has something big to tell Chelsea.


He's down on one knee, but it's not a ring he has in store … it's a crown.


And Chelsea will soon discover that travelling from Barking to Buckingham Palace takes more than a topped-up Oyster Card.


This is one Royal Wedding you won't want to miss ...!
