The chair fit for a Queen...or a Dame

We've been watching the London theatre reviews very closely over the past few days.  Why?  Because we have an unusual interest in one particular play - The Audience, a new play by Peter Morgan starring Dame Helen Mirren.

The play centres on HRH The Queen's audiences with the various Prime Ministers throughout her reign and takes place using two scenes; the first is in Buckingham Palace, the second in Balmoral.  The stage set comprises of two chairs and the ones used in the Balmoral scene are our very own Kittoch Chairs.  The producers of The Audience asked us to provide two tartan chairs for this very special play and we were delighted to oblige.  Those who have seen the play already are saying the chairs look truly magnificent forming the centrepiece for half of the play.

The play is already receiving great reviews and, as you would expect, Dame Helen Mirren steals the show with her performance as HRH The Queen.  Here's an extract from one review: "...seamlessly directed by Stephen Daldry in Bob Crowley’s elegant designed set with its smooth transitions and impeccably acted, not just by Mirren but by its whole company. Entertaining and enlightening, this is bound to be one of the most successful plays of the year – book now while you still can."

We were also delighted to have an advert in the programme featuring the Kittoch Chair, hopefully lots of the The Audience's audience will be attracted to the beauty and comfort that Dame Helen Mirren is enjoying on stage every night!

If you're lucky enough to see The Audience we would love to hear what you think of the play and in particular, our Kittoch Chair.  Please feel free to post your own review of the play on our Facebook page, we'd love to know what you think of it.

The handmade Kittoch Chair is available in any tartan; in fact, it's available in any fabric you wish but we think it particularly suits tartan! Visit The Kittoch Chair Web Site
