Summer season at Windsor Theatre Royal

Equus is the hard-hitting story of teenager Alan Strang.
With the boy confined to a psychiatric hospital after being convicted of blinding six horses with a metal spike, the play portrays the relationship between him and his psychologist, as Alan relives the tragedy of that horrific night.
Daniel Radcliffe's recent London-based appearance as Alan brought the play back into the minds of the masses, and the historic Theatre Royal will stage the psychological thriller from Monday-Saturday, July 9-14. The play deals with dark themes and contains scenes of nudity, so it is not recommended for younger audiences.
For music fans, The Merseybeats, featuring Tony Crane and Billy Kinsley, will rock out with a night of classics, including Sorrow, Don't Turn Around, I Love You on Thursday, June 21.
The summer programme will continue with a talented line-up of actors set to dazzle audiences in the Royal Borough.
Ex-soap star Anne Charleston, most famous for her role as Madge Bishop in Neighbours, will perform alongside Shirley-Anne Field and The Bill veteran Peter Ellis in The Cemetery Club.
The club members meet every month to take a stroll to the cemetery, where they remember old friends and late husbands, but everything changes one day when an unexpected visitor stumbles across the group. The heartwarming tale will be staged from Monday-Saturday, July 16-21.
And, just for laughs, on Sunday, July 22, top comic Reginald D Hunter will be tickling funny bones as part of Stand Up By Royal Appointment.
