The year is 1568. 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.

Elizabeth I was crowned queen at the age of 25, a political phoenix and famously unmarried, was the most educated woman of her age – but who was the woman beneath the crown?

Using only Elizabeth’s words Rebecca Vaughan 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 Fringe.

One not to be missed!
