‘maurice’s jubilee is a triumph!’ the scotsman Daily Telegraph




gay soper

julian glover

nichola mcauliffe

The critically acclaimed smash hit of Edinburgh 2012, Maurice’s Jubilee is the hilariously funny and moving tale of an ordinary man’s enduring commitment to a dream, and of a love triangle with a regal twist. Maurice’s Jubilee is a tender look at life and love in a marriage where Helena has been the Queen of Maurice’s heart for sixty years. But a distant memory of Her Majesty The Queen still sparkles brightly in this retired jeweller’s mind. Entrusted a lifetime ago with the Crown Jewels and a royal pledge, Maurice insists that his ninetieth birthday will be one worth waiting for. Maurice’s Jubilee stars Olivier award winner Julian Glover (The Empire Strikes Back, Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade and For Your Eyes Only and currently in Game Of Thrones), Gay Soper (theatre credits include Lend Me A Tenor, Sunday in the Park with George and Star Quality (UK tour)) and Olivier Award winner Nichola McAuliffe (Lady In The Van (UK tour)), Coronation Street, Surgical Spirit) in her unmissable self-penned new comedy.
