Photo Flash: First Photo Released of Rosie Holt and Brendan Murphy in THE CROWN DUAL

Two actors reimagine the story of how Elizabeth Windsor became Queen Elizabeth II (and recreate two resplendent Netflix series) in 70 minutes of frenetic hat-passing, period accents and corgi impressions.
"The Crown Dual", a new comedy from the pen of parodic mastermind Daniel Clarkson, co-creator of Olivier Award nominated hit shows "Potted Potter" and "Potted Panto", will run at the King's Head Theatre, Islington, from 12 March to 6 April.
Press night is Thursday 14 March at 7pm.
Rosie is a rising star of the comedy scene, having appeared in two acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe shows last summer. Brendan regularly appears in Potted Potter, is one half of cabaret duo The Crooners, and starred as Token Guy in "King Kong (A Comedy)", also written by Dan Clarkson and directed by Owen Lewis.
Having been cruelly overlooked for her dream role as Queen Elizabeth in blockbuster TV series 'The Crown", budding starlet Beth brings her own take on the epic story of the Royal Family to the stage instead... with her agent Stanley coerced into playing (almost) all the other roles - from Prince Philip to Princess Margaret, and all the commoners in between!
"The Crown Dual" is a perfect winter warmer for both fans of the show keenly waiting for the third series - and for those wondering what all the fuss is about!
Owen Lewis (director) was an Olivier Award nominee for Morecambe and Wise homage "Eric and Little Ern".
Produced by James Seabright.
