1568: At a vital crossroads in history a young Queen steps from the shadows to unburden herself of her many troubles and reveal her innermost thoughts on marriage, succession, religion, war and the challenges to her throne.
Defying the establishment by choosing to lead her country alone, she forsakes her own dreams and desires in order to steer England towards national and spiritual security. But time is against her...
Elizabeth I: Queen at 25, political phoenix and famously unmarried, she was the most educated woman of her Age - but who was the woman beneath the crown?
Traitor, bastard, heretic or prisoner: call her what you like. The rest is history.
Using only Elizabeth's words, adapted from letters, speeches and writings, writer and performer Rebecca Vaughan explores the queen’s struggle to reconcile the desires of womanhood with the duties of sovereignty.
Directed by Olivier Award winner, Guy Masterson (Morecambe). Winner of the Three Weeks Editors Award.
