The Royal Family Summary

Follow a famous family of stage stars as they go about the drama of the day: choosing scripts, dashing off to performances, stealing kisses from handsome beaus. But what's this business about the youngest diva wanting to quit the stage for domestic bliss? Never, darling! Doug Hughes (Doubt) directs a fantastic cast in this insightful, witty and moving valentine to the theatre written by two literary greats.
