Victoria’s Knickers 

Overview

Victoria’s Knickers 
By Josh Azouz
Directed by Ned Bennett


The night before her coronation, Princess Victoria is having a bath. Out of her chimney falls Edward ‘the boy’ Jones. Adored by the tabloids. Hated by the establishment. What follows is an epic and dirty royal love-story.

An Octoroon and Pomona director Ned Bennett and fellow NYT alumnus Josh Azouz (Buggy Baby, BBC Drama Room 2018) explode the true story of the boy who broke into Buckingham Palace into a filthy comedy. 

Was Boy Jones a lover, stalker, terrorist or all three?  And how did he get hold of the Queen’s knickers?

Set against the backdrop of an uncertain England and with original songs from Chris Cookson, the award-wining NYT REP Company tell an irreverent tale of passion and violence with heart and wit.
