Queen Elizabeth Slept Here : The Phoenix Players
Based on an earlier play, 'George Washington Slept Here' by Moss Hart and George Kaufman, Talbot Rothwell's comedy 'Queens Elizabeth Slept Here' was first presented at the Strand Theatre, London in 1969 starring Michael Dennison, Dulcie Gray and Kenneth Connor.
In the belief that Elizabeth I once slept there, Norah Fuller has bought a tumbledown country cottage with no mod cons, not even running water. Her husband is more than a little lacking in enthusiasm about it. To add to their problems they have a less than helpful handyman, unexpected visitors, a problem neighbour, some farmyard friends and a tiresome and annoying young nephew.
How they overcome the many problems they encounter in trying to make it fit to live in makes a delightful and hilarious play.
