Elizabeth I was the only unmarried Queen of England. For forty-four years she reigned as mastermind, seductress, survivor.
RADS presents Swive [Elizabeth], a searing play about Elizabeth's harsh, morally compromised scrabble to the top, and the machinations of siblings and relatives who saw her very existence as a threat.
Created by award-winning writer Ella Hickson and premièred at Shakespeare's Globe, the play shines a light on the ways and means by which women in power negotiate patriarchal pressure in order to get their way. Performances are at 7:30 pm on the 23rd, 24th and 25th, at Richmond's famous Georgian Theatre Royal. Tickets here.
