Backstairs Billy at Duke of York’s Theatre

Backstairs Billy looks at a pivotal moment in the fifty year relationship between the Queen Mother and her loyal servant William “Billy” Tallon. Set in 1979, when strikes are bringing the country to its knees and Britain is about to change seismically under Margaret Thatcher, it is business as usual for the Queen Mother and Billy inside Clarence House. Receptions are in full swing and the champagne is flowing as the two worlds start to collide with dizzying consequences.
