A period black comedy, set in 18th century England and loosely based on historical events. A frail Queen Anne, played by Oscar-winning Olivia Colman, occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah Churchill governs the country in her stead while tolerating the Queen's ill health and volatile temper.
Then a new servant, her cousin Abigail Masham, arrives on the scene. Initially Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and the newcomer sees an opportunity to return to her aristocratic roots.
While Sarah is occupied with the politics of war with the French, Abigail tries to step into the breach as the Queen's companion. However, Sarah is not a woman to accept this without a fight.
Also stars: Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, Mark Gatiss and Nicolas Hoult.
Doors open at 7.00pm; show starts at 7.30pm in the village hall. Refreshments are on sale. Tickets £7 are available at the door.
