Presented as part of the RSC/Allied Domecq Young Vic Season, Zenobia marks a unique collaboration between the RSC and the Young Vic. Nick Dear's comic play tells the story of the Queen of Palmyra (Penny Downie, right), who, after standing up to the Roman Empire, is hampered by ineffectual advisors - her commander-in-chief is in love and her son is a bookworm.

There are 20 pairs of tickets on offer, courtesy of Allied Domecq, for the matinee on 21 Sept to the first readers to ring the box-office on 0171-928 6363
