Pat Kirkwood - the greatest star you never heard of - a British actress who died with her reputation in tatters after an alleged affair with the Duke of Edinburgh.

Pat Kirkwood is Angry is a funny and heart-breaking new play with songs about the turbulent life of the actress and singer Pat Kirkwood. Named Britain's first wartime star in 1939, and with shows written for her by Noel Coward, her fortunes took a nose-dive after a fateful meeting with HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, the repercussions of which were to last her whole life.



The running time for Pat Kirkwood is Angry is 1 hour 20 minutes, with no intermission.

Part of the #BritsOffBroadway festival.
