PERFORMANCE GROUP

Reader's Theatre

This entertainment by and about the Kings and Queens of England includes music, poetry, speeches, letters and other writings. The Hollow Crown has been performed in America and England by the such stars from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre as Max Adrian, Dorothy Tutin, Peggy Ashcroft, and Marius Goring. The four readers enact the writings of royals from William I to Victoria; the three singers intersperse songs from the proper period - some of which are sad tunes on the death of kings while others are uproariously funny.

I ordered this script as we are looking for something related to Magna Carta! We have been invited to take part in commemorating the confirmation of Magna Carta to Faversham - celebrations taking place this summer, but ideas seem few and far between. The Hollow Crown is great, and would be easy to stage and enjoyable for both the readers/singers and audience, but I wonder if anyone knows of a more obvious link to Magna Carta, bearing in mind that time is short and we have a pretty full schedule anyway. Any ideas?
