ED2012 Theatre Review: Maurice’s Jubilee (Pleasance and PW Productions in association with Wild Thyme Productions)
Maurice’s royal love has left a significant impact on his life and the lives of his his family. 60 years after that fateful encounter with her majesty, Maurice, played by Julian Glover, is dying from terminal cancer. The appearance of Nichola McAuliffe, as new nurse Katy, finally brings about the revelations of the secrets of six decades of dishonesty. McAuliffe, Glover and Sheila Reid all perform as brilliantly as you expect and, accompanied by a brilliant script and a perfect set, give the audience a warm and amusing evening. Maurice’s Jubilee is a must for theatre fans: a wonderful opportunity to see three national stars tell an intimate story of devotion, obsession and delusion.
