Monarch Unmasked Through Diaries. 'An Evening With Queen Victoria' by Prunella Scales [review]
Bramwell, Murray Ross
With only simple period decor and a touch of electric gaslight, the success of this Evening rests with the intelligence and nuance of Prunella Scales’ convincing presentation, restless in adolescence, smitten in marriage, weary with grief, and capturing quiet humour and Victorian non-amusement. Here is a royal audience even republicans can enjoy.
