A theatrical exploration of the enigmatic Tudor monarch, ELIZABETH utilises letters, diary entries, poetry and plays written by Elizabeth I and her contemporaries, including some of her most famed suitors.
Inspired as much by her private passions and hallmark physicality as by her political triumphs, director/ choreographer Will Tuckett and playwright Alasdair Middleton explore this seminal figure through innovative and atmospheric storytelling, married with expressive and dynamic movement.
