Maurice is determined to reach his 90th birthday, which is the day before the Diamond Jubilee. The Queen, having made him a promise 60 years before, is coming to tea. His wife is convinced he’s never met the Queen. His nurse thinks it’s time he did.
Maurice’s Jubilee is the hilariously funny and poignant take on timeless themes, the exploration of one man’s enduring commitment to a dream, and an eternal love triangle, fallen on hard times.
Olivier Award winning Julian Glover’s, whose stage credits include Oliver! at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane; Henry IV and Henry V for the Royal Shakespeare Company; and Richard II at the Old Vic, recently spoke to whatsonstage/northwest about the production in advance of it’s presentation in Manchester.
