Serving Elizabeth

October 7 – 30

Firehall Theatre


Mercy, a Kenyan independence activist, is asked to cook for the visiting princess Elizabeth, who turns out to have a few surprises of her own. Sixty years later, the making of a TV series about the royal family causes more than a few culture clashes for a young Kenyan-Canadian production intern. A fresh, funny, and smart new play about colonialism, monarchy, and who is serving whom.

Serving Elizabeth was developed through the Playhouse Playwright’s Unit.
