  • H.R. Haitch
    H.R. Haitch
    Union Theatre
    No Matinee

    London, 2011. The Olympics are doomed, the East End is being gentrified for houses no-one can afford, Amy Winehouse has died, and Adele's released her second album. It’s been a tough year.

    But, in a world where Kim Kardashian can’t stay married for a whole TV series, love has blossomed between feisty East Ender Chelsea and dopey toff Bertie. He’s never going to win Mastermind, but he won Chelsea’s heart when he boned her trout at catering college.

    Chelsea has a new man and there’s a new progressive Prime Minister to light the days ahead (#blessed). The media can stick their obsession with the identity of Prince Albert, the secret royal who’s been in hiding for 20 years.

    Bertie down on one knee, but it’s not a ring he has in store… it’s a crown. But Chelsea will soon discover that travelling from Barking to Buckingham Palace takes more than a topped-up Oyster Card.
