Dear Members,

As a glorious finish to the Jubilee Week celebrations this all-star production will be the full and unexpurgated account of the romance, courtship and matrimonial proceeding of Charles and Diana (yes the "damaged" Diana), as performed by the company of the National Theatre of Brent, Desmond Oliver Dingle (James Sparling) and his trusted assistant Raymond Box (Stuart Draper). Desmond, the theatre's dramaturge and famed Artistic Director, is proud to announce the SLT's production as the initial amateur performance of his 1998 masterpiece and is delighted that there will be opportunities for punters/buffs to savour how tastefully he has crammed these epic events into a single profound and epic piece of theatre.

Take advantage of our new advance sales forms to secure your seats now and you'll be riveted to them by excitement and genuine royal fervour - a feeling not experienced in this proletarian age.

Reminiscences and Anecdotes

I think this was the most fun I ever had on the SLT stage. Great to be working with James, Peter is the drollest of directors, and Anna York managed not to have a nervous breakdown in the lighting box, despite our constant rewriting of the script every night. Stuey
