A Sundays@Six Series Reading in The Jewel Box Theater
In 1991, Chester and Bea, elderly twins with a tentative grasp on reality, manage to lure Queen Elizabeth II to their home in the British countryside in a misguided attempt to have her knight their beloved younger brother, Martin. When the Queen threatens to prosecute the twins as criminals, what started off as a well-intentioned pipe dream soon turns into a full-blown kidnapping. Martin and her Majesty engage in a battle of wills as Scotland Yard and the local constable, who is also Martin's fiancée, close in.
