Gwen Ffrangcon-Davies and Peter Barkworth in Crown Matrimonial by Royce Ryton with Martin Jarvis, Jane Wenham and Rachel Kempson.
The action of the play takes place in Queen Mary's private drawing-room at Marlborough House, London, in 1936. She is still Britain's only Queen, for her eldest son. King Edward VIII, has as yet no wife.
'It was strongly and skilfully cast. Gwen Ffrangcon-Davies had just the right touch of Imperial Germany in her sympathetic playing of Queen Mary, stiff-backed, compassionate, and with an over-riding sense of duty. Peter Barkworth and Martin Jarvis echoed believably the tones of Edward VIII and his brother who became George VI.' (Val Arnold-Forster, The Guardian)

- not those of today.
