TaleGate Theatre Productions are working with Bafta winning author, Nicholas Allan, on a new musical adaptation of his best selling book ‘The Queen’s Knickers’ (Copyright, 1993) due to tour UK theatres in 2020. 

TaleGate Theatre is known for its bouncy and colourful children’s musicals having previously found success with Allan’s books. Work includes West End run of ‘The Giant’s Loo Roll’ (Arts Theatre in 2016) and annual UK tours of ‘Father Christmas Needs a Wee!’ since 2013. 

The original, award winning, book explores the Queen’s fashions with a cheeky wink to childish humour- “Everyone can see the Queen’s smart coats and dresses, but what does she wear underneath? Through the eyes of a little girl hoping for a school visit by the Queen, the range of royal underwear is revealed, in all its regal glory”

It’s a busy year for the Queen – she has lots of important events to attend. But disaster has struck the palace as Her Majesty’s knickers have been nicked- call the royal guard! Meanwhile, a little girl is wondering what knickers Her Majesty will choose to wear on a school visit! Will they be her ‘at home’ knickers – adorned with corgis – or her ‘garden party’ knickers, or perhaps her woolly Balmoral ones…? TaleGate Theatre Productions, producers of ‘Father Christmas Needs A Wee!’ and ‘The Giant’s Loo Roll’ bring you this regal children’s musical full of songs, silliness and a corgi or two!  For the full tour visit www.talegatetheatre.co.uk
