The Hollow Crown is a unique entertainment composed of the letters, speeches, poems, songs and music by and about Kings and Queens of England. It sparkles with the wit of several centuries and demonstrates the vulnerable humanity of those who have worn the crown. The audience is taken back in time from Richard I to Queen Victoria. Not all the stories are sad ones. These are not the Kings and Queens to be met with in history books, but the living, breathing men and women who have played out their lives on the stage of England's court.
