“Fresh, funny, thought-provoking, and full of unexpected surprises” - BROADWAY WORLD
Actor and playwright Marcia Johnson was inspired to write this play after watching an early episode of “The Crown” on Netflix.
“The series was extremely well-made...I have seen every single episode. But, a particular episode, the one set in Kenya, still stands out as flawed to me. The Kenyan perspective was completely ignored.” Marcia Johnson
Politics and pop culture collide with unexpected twists as this fascinating play moves between 1952 Kenya—when an anti-monarchist cook challenges Princess Elizabeth in the moments before she becomes queen—and 2015 London—when a Kenyan-Canadian film student clashes with convention and custom while working on a TV series about the Royals.
The tension between people and politics—imperialism, representation, and the irresistible draw of the monarchy—infuses and ignites this exciting new play.
“Richly detailed with urgent ideas…Serving Elizabeth is a gem.” NOW MAGAZINE, TORONTO

This is Claire Gaulin-Brown’s solo art exhibit at the Esquimalt Community Arts Hub! Please join us for the opening reception on November 27th from 7-9pm.

About the Exhibit
A series bound by the fragile ground we tread, the fractured structures holding up our weight, and the alarm sounding contradiction of relentless forward progress at all costs. As ecological decay permeates our lives and breaks down structural complexity of our ecosystems we look to the past with eyes sealed shut, and stare into the future armed with false hope and power to push past caution until the ground falls out from under our feet.
