Heard the one about the Englishman, the Scotsman and the Irishman? This biting topical comedy pokes a finger at ideas of national identity, class and Britain's role in the modern world. Set in a once-grand country manor house now converted into a language school teaching English to foreign students, Queens English looks at the peculiarities and the stereotypes of the English, Welsh, Irish, Scottish and American cultures. The American, a brash New Yorker named Ruby, has recently won the school in a poker game, and now has big plans - including a surprise visit from a Royal guest. But first she has to try and gain control over the four teachers and their different backgrounds as tempers flare while personal and national grudges are brought out into the open, threatening to upstage HRH's imminent visit.
