An Audience with the Duke of Windsor
"Enthralling" **** DAILY TELEGRAPH
Who was the real Edward, Duke of Windsor and who 'chaperoned' Wallis in New York? Bob Kingdom's explosive and revealing new play explores one man's choice between love and money.
Regarded as one of the Edinburgh Fringe's greatest performers, Bob Kingdom's critically acclaimed one-man shows include Dylan Thomas: Return Journey directed by Anthony Hopkins and the Fringe First Award-winning The Truman Capote Talk Show; both productions have enjoyed sell-out seasons in Edinburgh, London, New York, and Sydney.
"An Audience with the Duke of Windsor will complete an important missing piece of history in the enduring and enthralling story of Edward and Wallis Simpson” BBC Radio
"A masterclass in the one-man show, a touching and accomplished portrait of the king we could have had" A Younger Theatre
"An extraordinary look into the life of a man who gave up his kingdom for love... emotionally charged and engaging. Bob Kingdom is wholly convincing as the ex-monarch... a fascinating historical piece" Three Weeks Edinburgh
