From the events of 1066 to Queen Victoria's solemn description of her own coronation, The Hollow Crown gives a human face to the English monarchy.
A 15-year-old Jane Austen's 'partial, prejudiced and ignorant historian's' entertaining account of the monarchy from Henry IV to Charles I, embodies the essence of this sardonic, affectionate and comic look into the changing role of the kings and queens throughout the ages.
The Hollow Crown has proved to be one of the most successful and enduring productions the RSC has staged over the years. Over 70 actors have performed it at different time and both Howard and Sinden are veterans of the production.
The Hollow Crown runs from Thursday 3 to Saturday 19 March at the Main House. For ticket details, see the website or call the box office on 0870 609 1110.
