Undoubtedly our country’s most colourful monarch, the King aged in his early 50s, appears in the most splendid bejewelled and golden costume; a near replica of the famous Holbein portrait.
This portrayal of the King in the later years of his life is based upon the most detailed research. He recounts his life, telling of his wives, children, and the events of his long reign in a most forceful fashion. He is ill and is greatly pained by his badly infected leg and, although recently married to his sixth wife, he appears an angry and vengeful man. This is a highly acclaimed and powerful presentation that is offered in the form of an ‘audience’ with the King, during the course of which, the public may question and petition their Monarch.
The Counterfeit Sixties presents a showcase of the great bands of this unforgettable time. The fantastic music of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Dave Clark Five, The Kinks and The Monkees - to name but a few - all recreated in this stunning show.
