Elton's key change to West End stage
Musician commissions play based on Queen's intruder ordeal as Old Vic welcomes Billy Elliot. By
Fiachra Gibbons for The Guardian.


The singer Elton John has commissioned a play about Michael Fagan, the drug addict who climbed over the railings of Buckingham Palace and managed to sneak into the Queen's bedroom.
Fagan spent 45 minutes at foot of the Queen's bed bemoaning his lot, and threatening to slash his wrists with a broken ashtray in July 1982, before palace security staff finally twigged that something was amiss.

John, who has written the songs for a new musical version of the hit film Billy Elliot, said he hoped the play would eventually be staged at the Old Vic in London, whose production company is also behind the musical.
