Set immediately after the Queen’s death, A Right Royal Farce envisages a future in which Prince Harry makes a bid to be crowned king. Far from being the dim-witted party boy of popular imagination, Harry turns out to be a brilliant Machiavellian operator who enlists the support of his gorgeous girlfriend in an elaborate plot to steal the throne.
Overnight critics were far from impressed by the duo’s follow-up to their Whatsonstage.com Award-winning, David Blunkett-inspired Who's the Daddy?, seen last summer at the King’s Head. They said the new sex farce about the royal family lacked any structure, was predictable, and simply wasn’t funny.
