Harry Enfield to star in ‘The Windsors: Endgame’ at the Prince of Wales Theatre
The stage play is adapted from Channel 4 comedy The Windsors.
Harry Enfield will make his West End debut this summer, playing Prince Charles in a brand new comedy play, The Windsors: Endgame. Adapted from the Channel 4 series The Windsors, the royal comedy is at the Prince of Wales Theatre from 2 August - 9 October.
The Windsors: Endgame parodises the lives of the royal family into a soap opera. Not much is known about the synopsis, but press material indicates there’ll be storylines following Harry and Meghan’s potential return from California, as well as Prince William challenging his father, Prince Charles for the crown.
Harry Enfield will reprise the role of Prince Charles, best known for shows including Men Behaving Badly, as well as appearing in Upstart Crow. Joining Enfield from The Windsors television series are Matthew Cottle as Edward, Tom Durant-Pritchard as Harry and Tim Wallers as Andrew.
Kara Tointon will play Kate, returning to the West End after The Man in the White Suit. Tracy-Ann Oberman will play Camilla, with Crystal Condie as Meghan, Ciarán Owens as William and Jenny Rainsford as Beatrice, Eliza Butterworth as Eugenie and Sophie-Louise Dann as Fergie.
First airing in 2016, The Windsors gives a satirical portrayal of the royal family. Its third series aired in 2020, with stars including Haydn Gwynne, Hugh Skinner, Louise Ford, Paul Whitehouse and Miriam Margolyes.
The Windsors: Endgame is written by George Jeffrie and Bert Tyler-Moore, with direction by Michael Fentiman.
The Book of Mormon will reopen at the Prince of Wales Theatre later this year. Find out more about when all West End shows are reopening in 2021 here.
