Buy Tickets Royal Flush

Written & Directed by Nick Lane
Performed by Matthew Booth
Presented by Rich Seam Theatre and Harrogate Theatre

Running Time: 2 hours 20 minutes including interval

1882. After years of inspiration, innovation, and occasional idiocy, Yorkshireman Thomas Crapper is given the commission to provide toilets for Her Majesty Queen Victoria. On the eve of the first 'royal flush,' Thomas writes a very personal letter - to a girl he hasn't seen in over 40 years...

2012. At an Old People's Home in Crapper's home town of Thorne, Joe -a 'maintenance engineer' (toilet cleaner) - has the job of a lifetime on his hands: he's got to get all the toilets - even the awkward one in room 8 - sparkling clean in preparation for a diamond jubilee royal visit. Has he got enough Cif to cope? Can he persuade Fat Irene to keep offthe nuts? And will his secret plan to solve all his problems work?

A revealing, touching and hilarious account of the man who became Britain's number one at getting rid of number two.

Rich Seam Theatre, who last visited Harrogate with sell-out show Beef, present the world premiere of this hilarious double-bill, showing how our attitudes to toilets, and the royal flush, have changed over the years.
