Early Morning is a surrealist farce by the English dramatist Edward Bond. It was first produced in 1968,[1] opening on 31 March at the Royal Court Theatre in London. The play takes place in a contorted version of the court of Queen Victoria, and Victoria is portrayed as a lesbian. Her two sons are made conjoined twins. This made the play extremely scandalous, as did a scene in which the character Len eats another person standing in a queue in front of him.
