A two-hander about Edward VI and Lady Jane Grey starring brilliant young actors Oscar Kennedy and Izzy Meikel Small, first seen together in the BBC's recent Great Expectations.

Aged just nine years old, Edward VI becomes King upon the death of his father, Henry the VIII. Together with his cousin Jane, Edward tries to negotiate the vagaries of life at court and to find a freedom when every move he makes is watched over by the tenacious Privy Council.
