This entertainment by and about the Kings and Queens of England includes music, poetry, speeches, letters and other writings. The Hollow Crown has been performed in America and England by the such stars from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre as Max Adrian, Dorothy Tutin, Peggy Ashcroft, and Marius Goring. The four readers enact the writings of royals from William I to Victoria; the three singers intersperse songs from the proper period - some of which are sad tunes on the death of kings while others are uproariously funny.
