THE MONARCHISTS by Carolyn Bennett
Thursday, December 7, 2017
What does loyalty mean in a changing world? When a seemingly unfit former television star is appointed Lieutenant Governor, her highly intelligent yet occasionally out-of-touch staff is divided on how to handle the fall-out. This satire spoofs the rarefied environs of a provincial vice-regal office and the players who run interference with the barbarians at the gate. God not only needs to save the Queen, but the entire institution.
