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. 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, Female Gothic) explores the queen’s struggle
to reconcile the desires of womanhood with the duties of sovereignty in this
five-star sell-out hit from the Edinburgh Festival.
