Carluccio and the Queen of Hearts

by George Rosie
Opening Night 26 May 2011
Director: Nigel Ensor

Carluccio and the Queen of Hearts is the story of the later years of the man who was once Bonnie Prince Charlie, the years during which he was an unwanted exile in Italy, unwanted by the Pope, the Florentines, the English – and his much younger wife. The playwright, George Rosie, is an Edinburgh journalist who has written a great deal about the history of Scotland, its people and their impact of the Scottish diaspora on other countries.
