The Queen is mad, and somebody is going to pay... DIRECTED BY RACHEL O’RIORDAN DESIGNED BY GARY MCCANN From the author of such classics: Can’t Pay Won’t Pay and Accidental Death of an Anarchist comes… Elizabeth, a hilarious and impious jab at the English Monarchy set in the Court of the first Queen of England. The Queen is mad, Shakespeare’s to blame and “Egerton’s a git”! Best British Theatre Company (Total Theatre Awards Commendation) Kabosh return following their highly acclaimed production of Sweeney Todd with an irreverent tale which chronicles how the virgin queen overcame the treacherous uprising against her. The creative team behind the hit West end show Hurricane joins forces with an all male cast to present this engrossing and intelligent farce by Dario Fo in a cross between Blackadder II and Hamlet, possibly the funniest history lesson ever told! Everyone has nits, no-one gives a damn and the Queen is covered in Fartleberries! All rights with the kind permission of the Rod Hall Agency, London “…perfect choreography and direction (Rachel O'Riordan) and a beautifully effective set from Gary McCann go to create a pure theatrical experience that is utterly engrossing.” Ra Ra Magazine on “Hurricane”
