The Queen's Knickers

In reverence to ‘The Queen’s Knickers’ which, as you’ll appreciate in a bit, is ‘back’ and stretchier than ever, let’s rifle amid this laundry-list of London’s most regal cultural raiment…


Rufus Hound – Fiasco, Downstairs at The Phoenix, 6 Aug
Mustachioed TV mutt Hound acts as MC as he and his chums mad-lib a spontaneous Cohen Bros movie, basing this caper on the rules to Bully Pullpit’s chaotic scenario game of the same name. Will it all end in a ‘Fiasco’? Probably so. Details and tickets here.


As Is, Finborough Theatre, 6-31 Aug
In its first London production since 1987, William M Hoffman’s bold and unsparing portrait of AIDS, as told through AIDS-afflicted writer Rich and his lover Saul, proves its lasting poignancy at the Finborough. Details and tickets here.

The Queen’s Knickers, Purcell Room at Southbank Centre, 6-20 Aug (pictured)
The ‘classic comedy for wise young children’ that so dazzled last year springs back – all new, freshly-washed and slightly-altered – to once again depict what befalls ditsy maid Dilys when HRH’s royal smalls – the same smalls Dilys is meant to be guarding – go AWOL. Details and tickets here.
