About the event

Michael Grandage Company presents  Marcelo Dos Santos’ new comedy Backstairs Billy which looks at a pivotal  moment in the 50 year relationship between the Queen Mother and her  loyal servant William “Billy” Tallon. Michael Grandage directs Penelope  Wilton as the Queen Mother and Luke Evans as Billy.

Set in 1979, when strikes are bringing the country to its knees and  Britain is about to seismically change under Margaret Thatcher, it is  business as usual for the Queen Mother and Billy inside Clarence House.  Receptions are in full swing and the champagne is flowing as the two  worlds start to collide with dizzying consequences.
