The play follows the dynamic journey of two amazing women;

 The royal queens of the Tudor and Stewart dynasties –

Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots.

In a play of passion and treachery we witness the collision which these two sovereigns seemed unable to avoid.  It is a tale that has ignited the imagination for centuries.

The London premier of a one woman performance following successful tours of Scotland, Northern Ireland and the UK.

This acclaimed solo performance feels the power of Elizabeth I and the pain of Mary Queen of Scots. The fight for the crown takes you through the passions of this cut-throat time. Be with these extraordinary women from childhood to…

Was the death of one the only answer?

The audience are these Queens’ subjects, sympathizers, enemies – but most of all witnesses to the events of the C16th which shaped the destiny of the thrones of Scotland and England. Enter the prison and the courts, private chambers and public processions as you journey with the cousins who called themselves Sister Queens.
