Aside from appearing together as the leads in the movie ‘Carry On Screaming!’, comedy legend Kenneth Williams and the iconic actress Fenella Fielding had a long love/hate relationship over several decades.
‘Screaming Queens!’, a new audio play by acclaimed comedy historian Robert Ross, takes us from their West End hit revue together, ‘Pieces of Eight’ (written by Peter Cook), behind the scenes of the classic and best-loved Carry On film that spoofed Hammer Horror’s output, and then finishes with a poignant meeting in the final year of Kenneth’s life where they debate their enduring legacy and what it means to them.
‘Screaming Queens!’ is a what-if fantasy. A three-act, two-handed snapshot of a complex, bitchy, and completely unique friendship; seen through the prism of the stages of London’s West End and the movie sets of the classic Carry On film franchise.
