Elizabeth Rex
Written by Timothy Findley
Directed by Susan Marie Rhea

In 1601, Queen Elizabeth I was forced by duty to condemn to death a man widely believed to be her former lover. On the night before the execution, she demanded that William Shakespeare’s acting troupe, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, perform a play to distract her from the heartbreak that would occur in the morning. This much is truth. Timothy Findley takes these historical facts, blends in a few "what if?" questions, and creates a powerhouse play about men, women, fantasy, death, and ultimately, love.

“Powerful, enlightening, heartbreaking and uplifting, Elizabeth Rex is an exquisite journey for the heart, with beautiful dialogue, strong characters, and fascinating arguments” –Amazon.com
