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. 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?

Using only Elizabeth’s words, solo performer Rebecca Vaughan (Austen’s Women – Edinburgh 2009 and Adelaide 2010 sell out), explores the queen’s struggle to reconcile the desires of womanhood with the duties of sovereignty. A five-star hit at Edinburgh 2010.

“A moving, emotional and passionate production … A definite must see for history and theatre addicts”– Hairline

“A performance worthy of an Academy Award Oscar”– The Carrick Newspaper
