Christie's obsession with King Charles II began almost 30 years ago, when she became fascinated by a portrait of him surrounded by spaniels and oranges. Her eccentric but likeably bonkers show brings him back to life, along with Samuel Pepys and her own performance art interpretation of the Great Plague. Also features a live witch-burning, sword fighting and dulcimer playing.
