History buffs will be intrigued to hear that a one-woman, one-act play about the life of Queen Elizabeth I will be performed at the Bacon Theatre in Cheltenham.
I, Elizabeth has been written using the Queen’s own words from letters, poems, speeches and prayers, and will be taking to the stage on Thursday 17 May 2012.
The audience will be treated to a solo performance by Rebecca Vaughan, star of Austen’s Women, in which she explores Queen Elizabeth I’s struggle to reconcile the desires of womanhood with the duties of sovereignty.
The play was a five-star success at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2010, according to organisers, and portrays the sacrifices that the young royal made in order to steer England towards national and spiritual security.
Bacon Theatre’s Hannah Brown said: ‘The life of Elizabeth I really seems to capture the imagination of strong women today, as well as appealing to those with a particular interest in historical figures who have made their mark in society.’
