The casting director is Jane Deitch, and Steven Moore is the assistant director.

The Story

The Throne takes place in 2002 with the festivities for the Golden Jubilee of the Queen’s ascension to the throne well underway. Her Majesty the Queen will open the new Science block at Dudley Goring Comprehensive School as part of the celebrations. Almost everyone is looking forward to the arrival of their distinguished visitor.
Derek Jones is the school's Head of Science and an unapologetic socialist and diehard republican. Derek decides to usurp the Queen's throne in a fit of lunacy. Or rather, make use of the special 'facilities' that have been set up for the Queen's exclusive use. However, the Queen Herself catches him in the process. When the two realize they've been stuck in the Portaloo, their embarrassment is swiftly replaced by confusion and dread.
Is this a terrorist plot? Will they be able to get out? Can they put away their differences to join forces and rescue themselves? What happens next? Get your The Throne London tickets now and watch this brilliant comedy from the best seats in the theatre!
