Two Weeks With The Queen

Two Weeks With The Queen

Presented by Wyong Drama Group in association with Red Tree Theatre
Dear Your Majesty the Queen, I need to speak to you urgently... Cleverly lifting the key moments from Gleitzman's novel and presenting them in a light-hearted, amusing and open way, making for an ideal drama.

If you want something done right, you should go right to the top, eh? At least that's what 12-year-old Colin Mudford reckons. After all, a big brother has responsibilities.

Colin has a mission.
He wants to speak to the Queen about his brother Luke who has cancer. Cousin Alistair would like to help but stress brings on his dandruff. Colin takes the lock off the back door and heads out alone. Adapted from the best-selling novel by Morris Gleitzman.

This poignant and powerful is sure to inspire the whole family.

Mary Morris - a Scottish-born Australian - has written several award winning plays including the hugely successful adaptation of Two Weeks With the Queen, which has enjoyed many international productions, Blabbermouth and Boss of the Pool.
