Wednesday 26th January @ 8.00pm Dyad Productions - I, Elizabeth

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 explores Elizabeth’s struggle to reconcile the desires of womanhood with the duties of sovereignty in an acclaimed production directed by Guy Masterson. A five-star sell-out hit at Edinburgh 2010, this is exciting new theatre at its best.
