Graham Woolnough has been a script writer for The Les Dennis Laughter Show, News Huddlines, BBC Scotland and Student Choice for BBC TV, which went on to win three Royal Television Society Awards.
This one man show is based upon the fictitious ‘secret’ diaries of ‘old queen’ William ‘Backstairs Billy’ Tallon, one time Steward and Page of the Backstairs to Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. During 40 years of service Billy saw and did it all. With discretion and diplomacy he tidied up little Royal mishaps, played Dame in the Christmas Panto, danced with ‘Her Maj’ and even sprayed air freshener whenever Prince Philip ‘let one off’.
With a superb script and faultless acting we hear all the secrets – crestfallen Charles, Princess Anne refusing to stop smoking indoors – even after the fire at Windsor, ‘Her Maj’ welcoming Chinese Ambassadors Mr Woo and Mr Wang, and tales of a visit by Tony and Cherie Blair (when a salt shaker went missing).
A play in two acts running at approximately 80 minutes with video effects this is a perennial comedy.
