Monarch. Maiden. Superfreak. It’s not easy being Queen
An ailing Elizabeth I clings desperately to her throne and her sanity. Her Royal Redness must stave off pesky coups and conspiracies and to make matters even worse, hunky heartbreaker Robert Essex is due any minute and Her Majesty is in no condition to receive guests. But that’s nothing a bit of leech-o-suction and a bee sting booblift won’t fix…
Drawing on all the energy, spirit and spontaneity of original 16th century commedia dell’arte, Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo offers up a modern stage masterpiece which transcends language and culture. Elizabeth: Almost by Chance a Woman
is in equal parts a bawdy burlesque, a riotous nose-thumbing of authority, and a surprisingly touching insight into the challenges of womanhood.This show contains strong coarse language.
