The Single Lady

1st July 2021, 19:00 to 3rd July 2021, 19:00, Assembly Rooms Theatre

A brand-new, student-written musical focusing on the infamous love triangle between Elizabeth I, her cousin Lettice Knollys and Robert Dudley.

As the daughter of Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth knows how much love can go wrong, but when she is seduced by courtier Dudley, History asks her one question: how far must a woman go to win at a man's game? Written by Will Geraint Drake and Lauren Brewer, 'The Single Lady' offers a glimpse into the sacrifice and personal cost to be a female leader in a man's world. Perhaps the “Virgin Queen” really isn’t all she seems in the history books...
