Victoria And Abdul

National treasure Judi Dench reprises her role from Mrs Brown as Queen Victoria in Stephen Frears’s film based on the extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship between Victoria and her Indian servant, Abdul Karim. 

As the Queen questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that her household and inner circle all attempt to destroy. As the friendship deepens, the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity.

This joyful drama comes from a script penned by our very own local writer, Lee Hall (Billy Elliot).
