A lovely romantic comedy with a handy supply of humour, this play is a genuinely witty exploration of unexpected love. In 1972, the Duke of Windsor (Edward VIII) dies while living in exile at the age of 78. Two weeks later in Canada, an 80 year-old woman from a small town named Galt has her tombstone engraved, claiming to be his wife.
A young journalist appears at her door, eager for answers. Flashback to 1919 as Edward, then holding the official title of the Prince of Wales, visits Canada as an emissary of the King.
Bored with the pomp and circumstance, he slips away from his official duties and begins a romance with a charming young woman.
