Royal Comedy at Richmond's Theatre
This Thursday 11th and Friday 12th October the Georgian Theatre Royal will be host to the sparkling, new, physical comedy Kings of the Cloth of Gold by Tony Lidington.
 
Set in 1520, Henry VIII of England meets with Frances I of France in an area of disputed territory. In a French field, under cloths of gold, these two kings compete to outdo each other in displays of wealth, wit, feasting and battlefield prowess. Each King is proud, intelligent, and the epitome of chivalry. But who will eventually win this battle of vanity?
 
With Emanuel Brierley as King Frances I and Dominic Goodwin as King Henry VIII, Tony Lidington reunites these two actors, whose dexterity and onstage chemistry have gained standing ovations.
 
Tony who has previously worked on The Adventures of Sinbad as well as successfully directing Mother Goose, has written and directed this years Pantomime, Babes in the Wood.  He is an inspiring and creative director who is always looking to blend together the historical and the contemporary aspects of this traditional art form, with magical results. 
 
Kings of the Cloth of Gold will be running at the Georgian Theatre Royal from Thursday 11th – Friday 12th October 2012 at 7.30pm. Tickets available from £7.00 - £20.00
 
Telephone bookings can be made on 01748 825252.
